    That's just the nature of the bookkeeping beast Strickdad. There's no way around that in any software because bookkeeping software likes to perform one task at a time.

    Quickens Let you do just what you want on one page. How ever it does not have all the controls that quick books has. Both programs are made by the same company.

    In QB Pro, I believe that you can just go to Customers-->Enter Cash Sales for this.

    Try invoicing date of one day in the past. Exit out of QB, then enter payment. Works for me.

    You can use cash sales or in the set up select single entry bookkeeping. (Not Highly Recommended though)
