ProCash, an Economic Model for Income Properties

Conventions of System Design

Product types and cost accounts are always identified as successive rows in an input array. Periods of time are always expressed as column headings in any input array.

Inputs are never entered as percentages. Decimals must be used. For ease of reading, this documentation often refers to percentages when the input entry must actually be made as a decimal.
