Using This Guide

The MoneyWorks User Guide is divided into chapters that correspond to the main functional areas of MoneyWorks, for example Debtors, Cash Transactions, Entry Windows. To find information on a specific topic, use the Index or the Table of Contents.

New features and changes made to MoneyWorks 8 since MoneyWorks 7 are highlighted in this document in the same manner as this paragraph.

Note:  The first sections of this manual covers aspects that are common to all MoneyWorks products (MoneyWorks Cashbook, Express, Gold/Datacentre). Subsequent sections cover the additional features of MoneyWorks Gold (although Express users may need to refer to the sections on Analysis Reports, Forms Design and Importing/Exporting).
