Then click on setup and then set start balance. Enter balance = your start balance.

See description below on how it works

To enter an account line , click on Data Entry and then Add Entry. You will see a little entry box - enter all the details NOTE THE SEQ MUST BE 2 FOR THE FIRST ENTRY AND ONE MORE THAN THE PREVIOUS ENTRY FOR ALL SUBSEQUENT LINS. Also NOTE that a number MUST be entered for both debit and credit, if you do not want to enter both then put a 0 in the unwanted entry.

To see listing of your accouts click on details and then statement. If the list is too ling for the page then click on blanck space and then use the up and down keys on the keyboard

version 1.2.1 is Beta so if you find any problems then contact me on

this version has some extra listings

This is the way it works

When you enter the start balance it puts a record in the table balances with a seq of 1 and a balance of whatever you set

When you enter the first account line with seq =2 it reads the record from balances and adds or deletes debit and credit. It the adds another record in balances with seq = 2

When you add the next account line with seq = 3 it again reads the record (seq=2) from balances, adds or subtracts debit and credit and writes record with seq= 3 into balances

Each subsequent account line does the same thing so that the table balances keeps up to date.
