How do I enter a credit card transaction in a credit card account register?
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.
- In the credit card register, enter a transaction as usual.
- 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.
- Enter the category and amount for each item.
- Click OK to close the Split Transaction window.
- Click Save.
