Re: total newbie questions

Definitely not a moron any major change like this is difficult and requires
so playing, why not get your friend to setup a second dataset for you to
play around and test so you don't have to worry about making mistakes.

It is mostly straight forward to use but in a more ridgid accounting mindset
than quickbooks.

I am a quickbooks convert very recently and had the same issues, stick at it
its well worth it one you get the mindset.

Subject: [Ledger-smb-users] total newbie questions

I hate to ask basic things, but I've been all over the place (sourceforge
archives, any help files/pdfs I could find, etc.) and I'm not sure what to
do.  If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd much appreciate it!

I've used Quickbooks almost daily for about 10 years and I very much want to
move my company to LedgerSMB.  I got someone to install it for me, and I can
enter data, etc. but can't figure out how to do the simplest things such as
pay an invoice, write or print a check, etc.

Lots of people seem to be using this, so there must be something key I don't
have access to (or know where to find).  I've been through the user manual
but it isn't helping with stuff like this.  Right now I'm trying to play
with it, enter some of my data, and make sure I can do everything I need,
but that's proving harder than I thought.

Here's an example:  I can enter a new vendor, and go to A/R-->Add
Transaction to enter a vendor bill, but then what's next?  The manual kind
of says use Cash-->Payment or Payments, but I can't figure out how that
should work.  And after I've entered several bills, I should be able to run
an A/R  Aging report, but I can't get that to show any data - it is just

Is my QB experience messing me up - is it making me expect to see things in
a different way and making not grok the LSMB way?  Any help would be much
appreciated!  (if I'm just a moron, you can tell me, just be gentle). (-:
