Double Entry Accounting offers a very simple set of software tools for monitoring accounting entries. This journal-style program allows users to monitor the numbers, but it leaves something to be desired in the design department.
The program's interface was basic and lacking direction, so we needed to visit the Help file's instructions and view a sample accounting collection before we understood how to navigate everything well enough. Once we felt comfortable, we discovered that the program allowed us to make deposits and deductions into several categories we created in order to gain a solid picture of our accounts. Once each separate entry was entered, we were able to cycle through a very readable selection of ledgers, balances, and statement sheets. While all the numbers added up and the statements were easy enough to understand, they didn't flow effortlessly, and we found ourselves pausing before each move because the layout didn't intuitively link from entries to statements. Another complaint we had was how plain and unprofessional these statements looked. The ability to customize each with a header and maybe a logo would have gone a long way toward making Double Entry Accounting a really versatile tool. While there were some headaches, the program ultimately provided a simple method for monitoring finances.
Double Entry Accounting has a 50-entry trial limit. It comes as a compressed file. Althought it has a few design flaws, we were able to keep an eye on our accounts, and we still recommend this program.
From Ezyware Software:
A user can enter up to 12 million journal entries to create a number of accounts, T-account ledgers, running balance ledgers, trial balances, income statements and balance sheets in a simple form. Accounting periods can be carried over to a new file.

Designed to do mainly one job accounting. No selection of choice of 100's of fancy invoices and time sheets. This is all done by journal entries..
Simple and easy for accounting pro's. Others need to learn accounting and not need to learn the horrors of finding transaction and money with software like MYOB and Quicken.
If your business is doing all the accounting work using paper and pencil for journal entries or a set of accounts for a project this fits like a glove. This is the next step up with less stress of learning other apps.

The price looks expensive but is very cheap in the long run. Because you don't need to upgrade the hardware. We running on Window'95 and on a Windows'7 with no problems where other software just failed.
Insert up to 30,000 accounts to how you want them to be.. If you want 50 bank account just create them if you want more of any type of account just insert them. need sub account just insert them and give them labels.
If you know nothing about accounts and accounting. Not for you because you will not have a clue.
This software uses the double entry system so NO re-learning an alien account system with numerous number of picture button for accounts you may not even want or uses.
If you haven't done an accounting course before its not really for you. But then again most of these other account packages need special training even if you are an accountant or accounting student.
My old system was big chucky and freezes after 20,000 or so entries because of their massive size and the endless sets of unless features and hard to understand reports and bad entries were hard to find. This package is very basic and uses next to no memory and you can create very large set of accounts and track down bad entry faster and it doesn't force an account or a balance sheet to balance. The good thing about this package it is one small file which will never go out of date and doesn't uses all thses special libraries making it work in all Windows and Linux under WinE with no problem.
