This is the view where the accounting happens. You record vouchers each having two or more entries. There are three forms in the view: Voucher form, Entry form and List of vouchers. Entry form consists of the input area and the list of entries. The entries of the voucher builds up in the list of entries. When all the entries are entered, the voucher is saved to the list of vouchers.

The voucher form has 4 saved fields and the Counter Account in the adding mode. You can save the voucher after all it's entries are entered. The list of vouchers is ordered so, that the newest is on top. In the list of vouchers you pick which voucher is the current and showing in the entry form. At the top of the list of vouchers is a search row, which you can use if your voucher count grows so big it is not convenient to browse by scrolling.

When you insert a new voucher, the entries are dropped one by one to the list of entries. Drop the entry with the drop-icon below the note of the entry. When all the entries are in the list of entries and the balance of the voucher is zero, you can save the voucher with the check-icon in the button bar. After you save the voucher it is added to the top of the list of vouchers.

When you are adding new entries the program adds automatically a 0-entry for you to edit. When you save the voucher, you don't have to care the possible 0-entries in the list of entries. They are automatically deleted by the program.

When you are in the adding mode, there is a Counter Account field in the voucher form. If there exists an account number that account is used as a counter account for all the entered entries. The program keeps the balance of the voucher automatically at zero by updating the counter entry after each new entry. You can toggle this feature on/off by pressing the symbol Σ/- after the search symbol. The counter account is not saved with the voucher.

The application does not control wheter your update is reasonable by accounting sense. For example you can change the data of an old fiscal year if you want to. Similarly you can change freely the data of all recorded vouchers of the current year. There are some rules to keep the data integrity, but it is your responsibility to follow the rules and practices of accounting. If you find a mistake that happened in history, the best practice is to record a repair voucher on top. That said the application allows you also to correct the error in the old voucher.
