A financial transaction is an economic event that affects the assets and equities of the firm, is reflected in its accounts, and is measured in monetary terms. Financial transactions are common, repetitive events that involve external parties (customers or suppliers) or internal events (depreciation, use of materials, etc.). Similar transactions are grouped into cycles.
Conduct a preliminary search and:
Discuss the key activities in the revenue, conversion, and expenditure cycles.
What does an entity-relationship diagram represent? Why do accountants need to understand them?

In your own words, post a substantive response to the Discussion Board question(s) and comment on other postings. Your response should address the DB question(s) and move the conversation forward. You will be graded on the quality of your postings, including mastery of the concept as well as critical thinking. If asked for your opinion, do not simply state that it is a good or bad idea; elaborate on your reasons and argument. Include enough detail to substantiate your thinking as well as your position on the questions or comments.
