17 Nov Version 2004 Enhancements
The ability to share and manipulate reports, especially by using Excel has always been a strength of QuickBooks. This feature has been expanded to include e-mail and other format options in 2004.
When creating a report in version 2004, the first change is that in addition to the print option, there are now two other buttons: E-mail and Export. The former is new, and the later is a change from an Excel button in the older versions.
QBRA-2004: Reports > Company & Financial > Profit & Loss Standard
