Weekly Dynamic: Negative Debit (or Credit)

When entering account transaction data in Dynamics GP, the system tries to be helpful and puts the cursor in the debit or credit column based on the debit/credit setting in account setup. This is great until you want to debit an account with a default credit balance and vice versa.
You can obviously tab or shift-tab to get to the right field or you can move to the appropriate field with your mouse. Or…
You can stay where you are and enter the item as a negative.
If you enter a negative debit Dynamics GP automatically enters it as a credit. Negative credits become debits.
Every so often this saves my sanity.
