Ledger - Keep track of your finances
Posted 15 February 2010 - 03:52 PM
My bank often doesn't show the actual amount of money that I have in my account so I end up spending money I don't have.
To help I created Ledger.
If you input what you spend each day into Ledger it will display your balance as well as your available balance. These are based on the balance of your bank account which is recorded when Ledger is run for the first time.
The available balance takes into account any overdraft facility you have as well as any cash you have in your pocket. This means that it gives you a real view of how much money you have.
You can also put details of any debts into Ledger. When you add a spending transaction with the same name as the debt, the transaction amount is deducted from the debt so that you can always see how much you owe (useful for credit cards etc.)
Ledger can also keep track of bills. If you have a regular bill which is paid by monthly Direct Debit, Ledger will automatically deduct that amount from your balance on the specified day.
Any transaction, debt or bill can be double clicked and edited or deleted
(My mum expressed an interest in having a copy of Ledger so the GUI is built with her in mind ie. the font size is big)

You may want to re-download, there was a > which should have been a >= in one equation which was causing the balance to be displayed incorrectly in later months.
There was also a stray 'D' in a parsing loop which may have caused the wrong transaction type to be displayed when the transaction had been double clicked for editing

Error at line 1
Line Text: yp;
Error: This line does not contain a recognized action.
the program will exit.
the "yp" was all funny looking though, it had a sideways : over the "y" and the "p" was funny looking, almost like a "b"
i re-saved it as "UTF-8" and that fixed it for some reason. i have no idea why.... can some one explain for me please?

Should be: Gui, 6:Show, AutoSize, Ledger - Setup

turns out there were a few of those instances of "AutoFit"

Glad you're finding Ledger useful. I had forgotten I had written it to be honest as I haven't used it for some time.
The AutoSize / AutoFit issue will be because it was originally written in (what is now) AHK_Basic whereas I take it you are using AHK_L. You can use the 'Replace' function in Notepad to get them all and it should work.
I hadn't noticed the bill-on-same-date issue. I don't have much spare time at the moment but if I do find a minute I'll give it a look and try to fix it.
If you come up with a fix before then, feel free to post it here.
