For licensed users of Accounting CS Workpapers

If you are a licensed user of Accounting CS Workpapers you can install the Workpapers CS print driver to make it available from print dialogs in all applications. Selecting the Workpapers CS print driver from non-CS Professional Suite applications, such as Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel enables you to create and store a PDF image of the source document or workpaper in the engagement binder.

The Workpapers CS printer is installed and available for all applications for which you are licensed in the Virtual Office CS or Software as a Service (SaaS) environment, but it cannot be used to print from a locally installed application to a version of Accounting CS Workpapers that is accessed in the Virtual Office CS or SaaS environment.

Installing the print driver

Use the following procedure to manually install the Workpapers CS print driver. The installation steps need to be completed at each workstation separately.

  1. Close all open applications.
  2. In Windows Explorer, browse to the location of the Workpapers CS print driver's installation file at X:\Program Files (X86)\Creative Solutions\Accounting CS\PrintDriver (where X is the location of your application's local installation files).
  3. Right-click the ACSPrintDriverInstall.exe file and choose to install the printer driver as an Administrator.


Using the print driver

  1. Open a document or workpaper that you want to send to the engagement binder within an application (for example, a Microsoft Word document or Microsoft Excel workpaper). 
  2. Open the print dialog and select Workpapers CS as the printer, and then click the Print button to open the Workpaper Properties dialog.
  3. Select the workpapers client, binder name, folder location, and enter a workpaper reference and workpaper name.
