JofA Technology Tips a Find

BY STEPHEN TYSON

I’ve been an AICPA member for about 12 years, but I left public accounting nine years ago. For the first four years or so after leaving, I found little to excite me in the Journal of Accountancy. However, that changed in the last few years.

The Technology Workshop and other articles on software, databases and general spreadsheet tips have been very useful to me in the private sector. I now keep almost every month’s JofA for tips.

Thanks, and keep publishing these good articles.
