Double-Entry Accounting in Microsoft Access
In this Microsoft Access tutorial I'm going to teach you how to track double-entry accounting records in your database. We'll talk about what double-entry accounting is, why you use it, and I'll show you how to properly store this information in your Microsoft Access database.
Ethan from Boulder, Colorado (a Platinum Member) asks: I enter in all of my daily transactions in my Access database using the Check Register template that you created in a previous video. It's very helpful. Thank you. How would I track transactions using double-entry accounting in multiple accounts? For example if I pay my Discover Card can I put a credit on that account and have a debit show up for my checking account?
Members will learn how to create a form where we can specify the credit account, which will then select the debit account based on our defaults. Then we can type in the amount, click a button, and have both transactions entered into the register for us automatically with a little VBA and a little SQL.
