Access templates: Business Account Ledger but double entry


I  found the business account ledger Access template database in Access 2016.
It works on single entry accounting.
Would it be easy to modify it to use double entry accounting?
If not is there a similar Access template for double entry accounting?

This won't be a trivial change since you will need to modify most of the database objects given that you will be changing the schema.  

I am not aware of any double entry templates but that doesn't mean there are none.  There are very few Access templates that I would use for anything.   Where did you get this one?

Here is a link to a fully functional accounting system written in Access.  The source code is available and I would recommend buying it so you have control of the app should you ever want to modify it.  One of my clients used it years ago and was very happy with it but I don't have any current citations.  I'm not even sure the product is still for sale.  It was a few thousand dollars if you bought the source code.

And then there's QuickBooks.  It is a pretty comprehensive product and can interface with other applications if you buy the ODBC driver.
