QL Bank Account

There appear to have been two versions of the program entitled QL Bank Account - a program to help you keep track of your bank accounts (essential in the days before telephone banking and internet banking).

QL Bank Account by Cenprime Software

QL Bank Account was the only program which appears to have been released by Cenprime Software. It received a poor review in QL World due mainly to its manual and limited ability to analyse your income and expenditure, with no automatic reconciliation procedure.

QL Home Finance was seen as a better product.

QL Bank Account allows you to keep track of your bank accounts and features the following:

  • Automatic posting of standing orders and other regular payments or credits
  • Set minimum balances for each account
  • Delete, amend and even backdate entries. Scroll through your statements.
  • Comprehensive 80 column display and printout.
  • 6 different entry search routines
  • Post items to headings with user-defined names.
  • Print out individual accounts and summary - eg. all payments to building society or motoring expenses
  • Works with Epson compatible printers and memory expansion

QL Bank Account by K J Gouldstone

A small advert in the back of QL User (June 1985) heralded this software which was said to hold standing orders and allow full screen entry of all bank transactions.

It was listed in Sinclair User as QL Bank Accounts System

Included enquiry, analysis, printed statements and on-line help and was based on their earlier ZX Spectrum Bank Account System. QL Bank Account System is designed to provide all the information you need about the state of your bank account.

The system is built round the transaction, which consists of a computer defined number, a transaction type code (debit card, cheque etc), the date, a six figure reference number, a 15-character description, the amount, and an analysis code.

The amount is entered in pence, which heralds from the Spectrum version. Up to 10 analysis codes with descriptions can be used and, via the transaction analysis option, show the total and average expenditure for each group.

An Enquiry option offers a range of details which can be displayed on the screen or printed and then a statement can be printed which shows the date, type, reference number, description, amount and balance for transactions from a given date.
