For licensed users of Accounting CS Workpapers

The Add Workpaper wizard enables you to add several different types of workpapers and documents that range from Microsoft Excel workpapers and other files recognized in the Microsoft Windows environment, as well as scanned images or documents from a connected WIA- or TWAIN-compliant devices, including mobile devices.
