Why are these accounts showing as creditors debtors control accounts instead of sales?

I’m wondering why all my sales and expenses are showing in the control accounts when I look in the company size information?

This is the total number of nominal entries, and you’ll typically have roughly twice as many entries on the control account as you will on the sales or expense codes, since a sales invoice is credit general sales (and credit sales tax control if you’re charging VAT) and debit debtors control, and the payment you received is credit debtors control and debit the receiving bank account (and similar for purchases).

Thank you Ian…I forgot about the purchase/sales ledger side and was thinking only from the general ledger side.
