 FMP ACCOUNTING package please....

Problem: too many duplications of accounting functions

Scenario:
1. I produce my company's invoices in FileMaker because I can type in
detailed information for the customer (using repeating fields)
2. I record my accounting of assets/liabilities/income/expenses in CheckMark
MultiLedger because of the Income Statement, Balance Sheet, General Ledger,
and other good reports, but whose invoices don't allow as much detail for
the customers as I need.
3. I keep my checkbook balanced in Quicken because I keep business and
personal in one bank account and its easy reconciliation saves lots of time.

Help--I am looking for a FileMaker database that can take the place of
MultiLeger (great reports) and Quicken (balance bank account) so that I can
more easily keep up with my bookkeeping. I am getting bogged down in too
much repetition. Any ideas on a FMP package that is inexpensive and very
good so I can get a life?  Thanks!

Look at www.filemakerpro.com in the section solutions.
Maybe you find something there.

I was hoping someone more knowledgable about AR and GR software would reply,
but here is what I understand.

Intuit is not FMP friendly, either in Quicken or in Quickbooks. MYOB
provides more useful hooks for AR, but General Ledger work is probably best
left to software designed for that purpose, particularly if strict
accounting rules (meaning auditing is likely) need to be followed.

Filemaker can build great invoicing systems, meaning all the stuff that
happens up to when a transaction becomes a receivable. It can do pretty well
managing AR's. There are some semi shrink wrap FMP based solutions available
that will do most of what you want, but they are expensive. But, while
possible, it is complex, difficult work tying FMP to the software you
mention, and it is unlikely you will find an inexpensive solution that does
what you want.
