11:16:39 <tim> Hi, kick me if this is the wrong place to ask... I'm new to double-entry, but loving GnuCash. If my 3 housemates pay me £10 each for the internet bill, then later in the month I pay the internet bill (£40), how would I correctly debit and credit the various accounts with these transactions, including the £10 I "paid" into the Internet Expense account?

11:57:51 <arbortender1> tim, I do something like that, and here's how I do it: When my housemates each give me their shares I deposit them. To account for this, I debit (increase) the bank account & credit (decrease) the (whatever) expense account for each of their shares. When I pay the (whatever) bill, I credit (decrease) the bank account and debit (increase) the (whatever) expense account.
12:01:21 <arbortender1> This way, my share is also accounted for, when I pay the bill.
12:10:03 <arbortender1> I also keep an asset account I call 'Cash in Wallet', which I use just like a bank account, to track cash expenses & income. If one or the other of my housemates give me cash, and I decide to keep that cash instead of deposit it, then I just debit (increase) the 'Cash in Wallet' account (instead of the bank account) for the first part(s) of the transaction (and similarly credit (decrease) the same (whatever) expense account), and
12:12:20 <arbortender1> Warlord, when you return...I did as you suggested yesterday & am running Gnucash in compatibility mode for XPSP3 in Windows7. I just had a first crash in that mode, with the folowing details: Problem signature:

12:14:05 <tim> Thanks arbortender1, I'll take a look at that. :-)
12:14:17 <arbortender1> I don't know if that helps or doesn't, or even if this is the right place to post that, but I'm gonna close the program & restart & see what happens. It was in the middle of an autosave, that it crashed, and I can still see the little green scale with writing file... next to it at the bottom of the window.
12:15:04 <arbortender1> you betcha tim!;-)
12:16:52 <tim> ah, yes, that's just the job, I think I was getting myself tied up in knots inventing complexities that aren't needed.
