I configure point of sale software and thus deal with my clients' accounting people. I need to know how to properly express to them this situation, when they describe it.

Thank you.

  • This is called a "no-op" - no operation. No real transaction will debit and credit the same account, since there's no change from before to after the transaction. Transaction that doesn't transact - is a no-op, not an operation. – littleadv Feb 7 '15 at 7:28
