Last week, when I was trying to work out an issue I had with a "how
to get this to work" aspect (see the archives for the thread related
to regular recurrent payments for rent) I obtained the most
informative answers when I specified step by step exactly what I was

The same would apply here for you. If you explain exactly where you
go, what you open, what boxes you fill in, in what order, step by
step, then it's much more likely that the knowledgable here can help. 
In fact, if you explained it step by step, I might even have gained
enough LSMB knowledge now to help you out in some of the less
esoteric aspects.

So how about a detailed explanation of exactly how you are using

It's not that, you just havn't keyed in on the way that LSMB wants it

closed, AR transactions.  Once some of the others gave me some
tips/hints from seeing exactly what I was doing, I was able to
finally work out the way to do what I wanted that kept LSMB happy.

"lift" from the archives and merge into any documentation that is
