The following is an excerpt from a telephone conversation between Ben Simpson, presi- dent of Main Street Co., and Tami Lundgren, owner of Reliable Employment Co.
Ben: Tami, you’re going to have to do a better job of finding me a new computer programmer. That last guy was great at programming, but he didn’t have any common sense.
Tami: What do you mean? The guy had a master’s degree with straight A’s.
Ben: Yes, well, last month he developed a new financial reporting system. He said we could do away with manually preparing an end-of-period spreadsheet (work sheet) and financial statements. The computer would automatically generate our financial statements with “a push of a button.”
Tami: So what’s the big deal? Sounds to me like it would save you time and effort. Ben: Right! The balance sheet showed a minus for supplies!
Tami: Minus supplies? How can that be?
Ben: That’s what I asked.
Tami: So, what did he say?
Ben: Well, after he checked the program, he said that it must be right. The minuses were greater than the pluses. . . . Tami: Didn’t he know that Supplies can’t have a credit balance—it must have a debit balance?
Ben: He asked me what a debit and credit were.
Tami: I see your point.
Q:Comment on (a) the desirability of computerizing Main Street Co.’s financial reporting system, (b) the elimination of the end-of-period spreadsheet (work sheet) in a computerized accounting system, and (c) the computer programmer’s lack of ac- counting knowledge
