i am kinda tired of using excel to track my checkbook. I will like to build a database that will ask me for date, description, payment, deposit and account balance.

The idea is to create sort of like a mini-checkbook.

I have tried a number of ways to make this work in filemaker but perhaps i dont understand how databases work.

thanks in advance.

I would suggest taking a look at the tutorial / sample files that came with FM7. I believe they still have a pretty decent tutorial with a line items table. For what you want, it should fairly easy. Dont forget to have a global field for your starting balance so it will be accurate when you do your running balance.
