    This is very disappointing. Especially for those of us that used the BCM/Office Accounting integration. What happens with BCM 2010? Will it integrate with Office Accounting 2009?

    I find it amusing that in the email I got they said their reason for discontinuing Office Accounting is that there already is free Excel Templates that do the things Office Accounting does. Really? I looked at the Excel templates and I don’t see what they see.

    Any news on what will happen with MPAN members’ Action Pack subscriptions?

    Will Accountancy firms still be able to sign up as partners to get an Action Pack and use of it?
