Answer

expense-entry.ts will only export interface. You have created two components with same name.

expense-entry.ts :

export interface ExpenseEntry { 
   id: number; 
   item: string; 
   amount: number; 
   category: string; 
   location: string; 
   spendOn: Date; 
   createdOn: Date; 
}

Then in your ExpenseEntryComponent.ts you need to import above interface as below:

import { ExpenseEntry } from '../expense-entry';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-expense-entry',
  templateUrl: './expense-entry.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./expense-entry.component.css']
})

export class ExpenseEntryComponent implements OnInit { 

   title: string; 
   expenseEntry: ExpenseEntry; 
   constructor() { } 

   ngOnInit() { 
      this.title = "Expense Entry"; 
      this.expenseEntry = { 
         id: 1, 
         item: "Pizza", 
         amount: 21, 
         category: "Food", 
         location: "Zomato", 
         spendOn: new Date(2020, 6, 1, 10, 10, 10), createdOn: new Date(2020, 6, 1, 10, 10, 10), 
      }; 
   } 
}
