1. ## owe and what?

I have a table which has three columns after the names. The first column is for the amount of money s/he owes to the company and the second column is for the amount of money s/he wants from the company. How can I name them?

 name XXX YYY result Gholam \$ 40 \$ 30 - \$ 10 Beigom \$ 20 \$ 40 + \$ 20

Amount owed and amount due?

3. ## Re: owe and what?

Sum paid back? Though why would someone pay back more than they owe, like Beigom? I don't really get the logic of what they're doing with the money.

No, actually Beigom has to be paid 20 dollars, because she ows 20 dollars and she wants 40 dollars.

I don't know what you mean by "she wants 40 dollars". Surely she can't just demand 40 dollars for the company for no reason. Do they owe her 40 dollars? If they owe her 40 dollars but she owes them 20 dollars, then they can just give her 20 dollars and it's all sorted.

Yes, you got my meaning. But the question here in this threat is 'How can I name the two columns: XXX and YYY?'
Thank you

"Amount Owing" and "Amount Due" would be my choices. The first would be how much he/she owes the company and the second how much the company owes him/her.

Thank you, and what can I call the person who owes and the person how wants some money from the company? Can I say: Gholam is an ower and Beigom is a ......?
I don't know what to say in here!

Could the three columns be labelled debit, credit and balance?

Yes, and the person who has a debit more than his credit is called ........
