That's what I did :-) When I first told my accountant I was using
a freeware program to do our accounting, she was skeptical. But
when I showed her how it worked, her reaction was somewhere along
the lines of "Oh Cool, they got it right." She proceded to show
me the "T" equation of accounting and why it is the way it is.
The tutorial and concepts guide also tries to explain the "why"
if you really want to know. If you just want to use the program
without needing to learn accounting, it's easier to change the
PS. If the tutorial and concepts guide doesn't come up when you
click on "help" it's most likely because you didn't install
