This project was developed in response to employers' demand for employees who know how to use Peachtree, a commercial accounting software package used by many well-known companies, before they are hired. The package was designed to accompany any college accounting book and shows readers how to implement the manual accounting procedures they learn in their main book in a computerized environment using Peachtree Accounting for Windows Release 4.0 software. A brief explanation clearly and concisely explains to students/readers each function of the software. Geared for readers mainly in the field of Accounting Information Systems or Computerized Accounting.
