Revised Post Small Business Accounting Software

What we need is an accounting program that will allow us to enter the following information per order (listed below). Then keep track of it all and generate custom reports in various ways such as stements of
orders paid and unpaid per client, unpaid orders per client, amount owed, etc. Forgiveme as I am nto an accounting, just trying to keep my father's business figures in an organized fashion. The program should allow the entry of checks and apply the payments to the individual orders.
On each order we need slots for date order was entered, the date the order was completed and delivered, if teh order was cancelled, the clients file number for that order, our file number for that order, then there is a buyer name and a seller name, comments, then we need to know when the order was paid for, how much was paid on the order and the check number.
I know this cannot be too difficult, but neither microsoft or quicken has what I need. I am sure that some could custom make this in access for me if I could find someone to do it.
Is this enough info?
