Double-Sided Entries

Several types of documents function by placing accounts, object codes, and amount combinations in separate sections of the Accounting Lines tab. These sections may be entitled From/To, Income/Expense, Decrease/Increase, etc., depending on the type of document.

In a document with From/To sections (such as the General Error Correction or GEC document), the From section of the transaction represents a decrease in income, expense, or budget to an account. For example, when an account is entered in the From section of a GEC document and the object code is an expense type, the transaction reduces (credits) the expense and increases (debits) cash for that account.

The To section of this same type of transaction represents an increase in income, expense, or budget to an account. For example, when an account is entered in the To section of a GEC document and the object code is an expense type, the transaction increases (debits) the expense and decreases (credits) cash for this account.
