You can create a custom contact list report in Reckon Accounts Hosted.

You can then export that report into an Excel workbook.

You can use Excel workbooks as a data source in combination with a Microsoft Word letter template to create customised letters which you can personalise and send out.


In Reckon Accounts Hosted generate the report that contains your contact list:

1. Click the Reports menu
2. Select Lists
3. Select Customer Contact List
4. Click the Modify Report button



In the Display tab, select only the necessary column headers



Example:

-Customer
-Mr, Mrs
-First Name
-Email 
-CC Email

You can change the Sort By drop-down list to sort the report by "Email" so that you can group them together (those with email addresses and those without)



5. Click the Export button to generate a new Excel workbook (XLS)



6. Click the Export button


7. Download the file from the Hosted platform to your local computer
