Select Word Templates dialog box: options and information

You can export the information from a Microsoft Office Accounting 2009 transaction form to a Microsoft Office Word template. In the Select Word Templates dialog box, you can select the Office Word template that you want to use.

 Note   If you are using Microsoft Office Word 2003, you can control whether table gridlines appear in the document by clicking Hide Gridlines or Show Gridlines on the Table menu. After you make a selection, the format will remain in effect until you change the selection.

Open the dialog box

  • On the Actions menu of a Quote, Sales Order, Customer Credit Memo, Invoice, or Purchase Order form, click Export to Word.

The first time you export any form to Word (except a customer statement), the template you select in the Select Word Templates dialog box becomes the default template. After the first time, you can export a document to Word without opening the Select Word Templates dialog box by clicking Export to Word on the toolbar. If you want to select a different template for the form, on the Actions menu, click Export to Word.

The dialog box contains the following options.
