Personally, this is the kind of software that I usually recommend people buy
off the shelf. Its plentiful, inexpensive, and works. For small businesses
I recommend Quickbooks or Quickbooks Pro, depending whether they need
Payroll or not.

I've looked at this stuff before. Fastest way for me to develop this stuff
is in MS Access '97. And There's no way I can develop it for what it costs
to buy it off the shelf through someone like Egghead.

A friend is asking me to develop a small accounting package - you know,
accts receivables, payables, etc...

What do you guys suggest, Visual Basic 5.0 or Visual Foxpro 5.0 ? Does VB
have a Report Generator like Foxpro ?
