… seems Twat has done her cash applications in an extremely odd way, and if it is to be corrected *I* have to do 3 journal entries where if she just reversed what she did and would re-do it the whole situation would be cleared up.

The problem, in this case my A/R is not accrutately stated, is that some clients have overpaid and she can’t put the excess funds against a particular invoice so she put it into what she stupidly is calling “Cash on Account” – and my telling her that there is no such account has gone over her vapid head. “but there it is, cash on account” and I said “no, that’s Accounts Receivable”. Well all you need to do is a journal entry and I informed her that I can’t do the JE as one cannot do a JE into a subledger.

It’s not the Miscellaneous A/R which is out of wack, which is where the manual journal entries such as accrued revenue go, but Accounts Receivable itself — which is a single figure representing the value of the subledger. Anyone who has done Accounting 101 knows that one cannot do manual entries into a subledger – be it A/R, A/P, Fixed Assets or whatnot.

Why oh why is there someone doing this job who does not understand even the most basic elements of accounting and journal entries?
