Expense Web App

I would like to build a simple program where I can enter in expenses off of the receipts, and maybe have it where I could also bring up a scanned image of the original receipt.
Problem is that I haven’t coded in PHP in nearly a decade!!
The part that seems scariest to me is that ideally I need a way to create a parent Order/Invoice/Receipt record, but then have a web control where I can add 1-to-many line items.
Many many years ago I had built a pretty cool database using MS Access that would do that, and Access made it easy to use their pre-made form controls to do what I described.
I’m curious how hard this would be to do in PHP/HTML?

Re: Expense Web App

seems like a good question for Stack Overflow or another forum dedicated to coding.

Re: Expense Web App

This wouldn't be difficult for somebody with PHP and database experience.  A broad book such as this one should help you get that experience:

Otherwise, perhaps look for a project that already does what you need?
