1. Getting Started with QuickBooks > Using QuickBooks Sample Data

Using QuickBooks Sample Data

You can open one of the sample data files installed automatically with your QuickBooks software and begin trying what you are shown in this book. With this data you can test creating transactions, review how lists are set up, and process reports with ready-made data.

The number and type of sample data files installed will differ depending on the version of QuickBooks you purchased.

To open a sample file with sample data, follow these steps:

1. Launch QuickBooks from the icon on your desktop.

2. From the menu bar, select File, Close Company/Logoff. The No Company Open dialog box displays.

3. Click the Open a Sample File button and select a sample file from the drop-down list as shown in Figure 1.1.
