Im looking for a solution to an Accounting Comprehensive Problem

Resolved Question:

I'm looking for a solution to an Accounting Comprehensive Problem you helped someone else with earlier. My understanding is that the values are different but the problem is somewhat the same. I don't suppose you would be interested in selling the spreadsheet to me for $20?

It doesn't have to be the solution for these $ as I can work that out. I just want to see how someone did it. I'm not willing to pay $40 for it right now as I worked half of it out last night. I just want a previous version emailed to me.

Donna’s Entertainment uses the perpetual inventory system and the First-in, Last-out costing method. Transportation-in and purchase discounts should be added to the Inventory Control Sheet, but since this will complicate the computation of the First-in, Last-out costing method, please ignore this step in the process. They also use the Allowance Method for bad debt.

The Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable Subsidiary Ledgers along with the Inventory Control Sheet should be updated as each transaction affects them (daily).

I'm sorry I cannot help you. I'll opt out so that perhaps another Expert can.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

No, I haven't received help yet. I originally sent the email to an expert that helped with a similar problem. But, no, nothing yet.

Hi, Muhammad. It appears that this problem is similar. In my original email I had offered $20 since I didn't need help reworking the numbers, just needed a similar one sent without any additional work on your end (just a few minutes of your time to email. Is $20 acceptable to you? And if so, could you also include the problem so I can see what the differences are in the problems?

Thank you very much.
Expert:  F. Naz replied 5 years ago.
Okay, I am sending the question, thanks.

Please do not hesitate to ask further and if you are satisfied do not forget to click on ACCEPT button so I get paid for my efforts, thanks.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Sorry, I'm not sure where we left off....

We've agreed to $20?

BTW - I believe the problem you gave me isn't complete and is missing a few pieces including the adjusting entries in the journal. Just FYI.
