I am looking into building a small accounting system in Access. Does anyone know if Microsoft has offered any templates for this or if their are any online examples of this sort of thing.

There's a Personal Account Ledger template, but I don't know if it will suit your needs.

Accounting software can be very, very tricky to deal with, and can end up costing you a serious amount of headaches if you don't have everything done right. Given the numerous off-the-shelf products that work very well I'd be hard pressed to devote any time to building one myself.

Just curious ... have you looked into using Quick Books Pro?
I have been using it for 20 years.
