    What I REALLY need to do is learn how to incorporate math functions into forms like this so I can make forms that add mat'l markups, taxes, monthly overhead...etc.
    If you have some info...I'm ALL ears. (eyes in this case)
    I'm a pretty heavy excel user. If you need a hand, send me a private email.

      Re: Computers?

      I use computers for browsing the net, doing email, and designing plumbing.
      Instead of traditional plumbing (been doing the physical installation of piping up till a few weeks ago) I now do plumbing design in 3d using AutoCAD and CAD-Mech...
      I am working for a large mechanical / plumbing contractor and we have 6 people inhouse that just draw all day - 2 do mechanical piping, 2 do plumbing and 2 for ductwork...
      We are currently designing the mechanical systems for a local hospital...

        Besides using it for most everything already mentioned I also:
        Pay my estimated taxes
        Check property values and owners at our county Assessor of Property site
        Look up phone #'s that I can't identify from caller i.d.

        This is always a big hit: I take a digital photo of my customer's house from the street, download it to Picture It, fade it out a little bit, and print it on front of the envelope that their invoice is in (it takes up the whole front of the envelope). The customers tend to save the envelopes to show to their friends!

          I use it for invoicing, customer database, use quickbooks contractor for the accounting part of it. Without a computer in this business, it would be tough. I need it for scheduling, contracts, and to talk on here

            Without I computer I would be out of business, I do all my accounting with Quickbooks and quotations and client index with a program called filemaker, I use my computer to print out photos from my digital camera to show clients who are scared of heights what has to be done on a job as a photo is worth a thousand words.

              In addition to all the items listed, I’ve found working with graphics especially useful. I use graphics for everything in marketing, (flyers, ads, promotional letters and websites) to producing specialized pages for Pricebooks. Here’s an example of a truck design I put together for a friend of mine from a sketch he sent me. He wanted to see what his idea would look like before ordering the decals. Once we dialed it in, he emailed the file to the printer (with dimensions).

                    Yes there is nothing more important than a "pretty" plumber.

                                I also like to shop and compare online prices ,since I live in the countryside and driving somewhere takes forever.
