TOP TECH NOTES
When trying to determine the cause of slowness in C&P, it's helpful to take a step back and look at all of the factors involved. Beyond the program itself, there is a local environment, network topology, database, and server to consider. Faults with any of these can lead to less-than-optimal performance and faults with more than one can greatly multiply the problem.
The built-in Clients & Profits report writer lets users create custom
job lists, client summaries, accounting reports, and more without rekeying
jobs, clients, costs, and oth er data. This tech note expands on the information
provided in the Custom Reports chapter of the user guide.
With a scanner and Photoshop, your shop's logo can be pasted into your
Clients & Profits database. This means invoices, estimates, purchase
orders, insertion orders, and statements can be printed on plain paper,

guide to maintaining, checking, and managing your C&P database. You'll

it can become damaged, and how to troubleshoot data problems. It's an essential
