So put a folder on one machine and grant access to it for both. You can goto the
folders properties and edit who has rights to it.

I have the folder on one machine but don't know how to grant access to just one other computer on the network. Can you tell me in detail how I would do that?

Using the permissions tab, right? I'm not really sure how to allow specific remote users to access this folder but can easily adjust it for local account. Hopefully someone will know.

Does each person have their own log in?
You can connect to it with something like this:
NET USE S: \\COMPUTERA\SHARE /USER:COMPUTERA\ADMIN PASSWORD
Where COMPUTERA is the computer name for PC-A.
SHARE is the name of the accounting share
ADMIN is the name of the administrator account
PASSWORD is the password for the administrator account.
At 10 machines you're on the top end of a network without going with a server. I would highly recommend going to a server as soon as possible as it will make user, file and print administration much easier.
The correct method of doing this would be to have all the users have the same user name and password on all 10 machines. Then share the accounting directory with the people who need access and give them the appropriate level of access.
There are two aspects to a network share, there are the share rights and the drive rights, your access is the most restrictive of the two. Everyone may be able to connect to the share, but if they don't have the rights to the files they don't have access.
NEVER use deny. Rights are denied if not given. Using deny normally causes more problems than it will ever solve.
