Can anyone lead me to a thesaurus of the various terms for "debt" on financial statements (balance sheets)? I know current portion of long term debt, long term debt, capital leases, and notes payable. However it still seems to me to be difficult to nail down what exactly is debt. Seems like this should be easier somehow.--Rockythecat
