^ I actually agree with this, I run my business off excel, as it was easier for me to build something in excel than learn to use quickbooks, the accountant does the official work. Do whatever you have to to run your business, spend as little time as possible administering your business, and as much time as possible running it, selling, buying, making, marketing etc.

There are subscription accounting packages like xero, so you don't have up front cost.

Setup a LAMP severs (websever with PHP, MySQL, Apache, etc) on an old machine, can be from 15 years ago. - Free
Install something like http://opensourcebilling.org/ - Free

You could also then make the webserver ports open and do invoicing from anywhere on the net for free.

If it were me, I'd do something in Access+Excel.
But that's what I do. 150,000 peoples worth of broken Access and Excel problems eventually float up to me...:lol:

If I were an Excel beginner, I wouldn't even consider it.
Quickbooks, or the above LAMP stack.
