It will show a negative if you received more money than was invoiced to a
customer or if you have an "outstanding" invoice for a customer that has a
total amount due of something less than zero (indicating a credit).
I don't use the Balance field in Emerald because it's not tracked properly
(at least with Emerald 2.1.11 and below). Quite a few of my masteraccounts
have oddball balances listed for no apparent reason. I think when invoices
are voided, for example, the balance is not readjusted. There are probably
other things that cause the discrepencies too...
