New User Anomalies

Hi, I am a new user to LedgerSMB, although in a previous life, I 
contributed to SQLedger.  I have set up  an accounting system for a 
small rental property (less than 20 tenants) called SSN  and have 
obviously messed up some part of LedgerSMB.  Here are my questions and 
issues. Any guidance is appreciated.

First let me say that the Trial Balance, Income Statement, and Balance 
Sheet reports all appear to be correct (at least as I expected them to 
be :-).

When I do Reports->Chart of Accounts the first anomaly is that none of 
the summations in the Headings match their domain  For example 1000 
Current Assets lists only the checking account debit. The AR debit 
appears in the Capital Assets debit heading.  1820 Office equipment 
appears under 3300 Share Capital.  and so on.   I created another 
accounting system (Test) and that one does not have this problem so I 
have somehow hosed up SSN. I have posted quite a bit of data and am 
hoping there is a solution short of re-entering all of the data.

Secondly,  on both SSN and Test,  when I look at 
AR->Report->Transactions.closed  (the result of creating and posting a 
customer invoice and then posting a receipt) I see the following for the 
receipt:   a debit to 1000 (the current assets header), a debit to 1060 
checking, a credit to 1200 AR, and a credit to 1800 Capital Assets 
header.  I see the following for the Invoice:  a credit to 4410 Rent 
under other revenue, a debit to 1200 AR, and a debit to 1800 Capital 
assets.  I do not understand why the debit and credit to 1800.  
Interestingly enough, per the above the 1800 Capital Assets show the AR 
amount on SSN, BUT not on Test.

So I know the first part is messed up. I do no know if the 1800 
transaction in the invoice and receipt is supposed to be there or it's 
another indication of my degraded system.

I really do not want to re-enter all of my data. If necessary I will, 
but I want to be sure the system is working properly before doing so.

Again, any guidance to avoid re-entering all of my data and attachments 
will be greatly appreciated
