Accounting Problem: Year End Issues With General Ledger

Hi folks,

One of our customers is currently stuck attempting to close the financial year 2012 within their OpenERP system. They are just using the basic accounting module in OpenERP version 6.0.

When happens when they try to close the financial year is that all of the balances are carried forwards correctly, but the opening balances for some bank accounts are not appearing in the general ledger or trial balances. The bank accounts in question have a type of "Liquidity" and they have had their opening balances applied correctly, they just aren't showing up elsewhere.

We have looked at updating a journal entry to correct this, but this then means they are correct in the GL and TB but not in the actual accounts.

Has anyone had this particular issue before and do they know how to fix this?

Many thanks,
