What type of "accounting" do you require? I've written several Web
Pages that interface directly into SQL to do many accounting tasks.
One of the more urgent / useful pages is the Pay-Invoice one. Emerald
already includes a payment description field, and at least I can set
the date when the invoice was paid, including noting information on
the payment - I can easily see into which account the money was paid
and on which day.

Mail me if you're interested - I've got several other pages,
including on-line invoices, statements, reports to show invoices not
paid etc. all for web access.

You can check out an example of the invoices at

Just fill in a number from 1-800 or so (only recently started using
Emerald) to see the output which is generated on the fly.
