Help finding good words or phrases

Postby heto » Wed Feb 10, 2010 11:06 pm

I'm writing a financial program, and I need some help coming up with some terminology.

I'm looking for an umbrella word or short phrase that covers both payees and the sources of money.

Also, what is an umbrella word or short phrase that covers accounts like checking, savings, money market, and if possible, CD's?

Thanks.

Hi heto,

I was just wondering if you ever came up with phrases to suit you for this. If so, would you mind sharing them with us? As our silence would seem to indicate, no one here had a clue.

one word value

Would a word as simple as "credits" for the second situation work?

I like that it's very simple, but I think it would be too easily confused with "credit" transactions, ie, charging something on a credit card.

Thanks though.
