The credit card account register works like a checking account register. It has a Charge column where you enter the items you charge and a Payment column where you enter the payments you make to the credit card company.
The balance of a credit card account register is typically displayed in red (because credit card charges represent a liability in terms of your overall financial picture). A positive (black) balance can indicate possible overpayments or incorrect adjustments.
  1. In the credit card register, enter a transaction as usual.
  2. If you purchase more than one type of item in the same transaction, on the transaction toolbar, click the Split icon to enter the category detail.
  3. Enter the category and amount for each item.
  4. Click OK to close the Split Transaction window.
  5. Click Save.
