Running Balance


I need to supply a running balance for my clients.

I have tables to track invoices and invoice items. I also track transactions and amounts received.

These work great to show what is owed and what is paid on a particular invoice over a period of time, but if a previous invoice had a $100 balance owing on it, how can I easily discover it and add the extra amount to the new balance?

Do I need to add a "balance" field to the invoice table?.

What is the best way to give the customer a current balance?

Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy.

I got hung up on the individual invoice, where I should have been thinking client.
