For example, add two new fields to the res.partner.tree view:

This will give you a view that looks something like this:

If you create your own view (much better than changing one of the default views because any changes will be removed when you upgrade if you change a default view) and your own window action, you can apply a domain to show only those customers who are over their limit.

As for showing this as an alert once you login, I don't have any thoughts on that.

i know how to set the credit limit. And i saw the alert message. If his payment due = 500 and credit limit is =10000 Then can alert the payment due =500 .How can i configure this type of alert message.

Hi Ray, I also need the same requirement. I have set the credit limit for a customer to 10000. then payment due = 500. I have two questions: 1. When i login to my database, can i see all the due payment alerts of all customers. 2. Any other option, i just want to show alert of all payment dues of all customers.

The "Total Receivables" and "Credit Limit" fields are shown on the form view of the Customer, just add these fields to the list view of the Customer. If you want a view of JUST customers who are over their limit, you can set a domain on a new menu's window action to filter just when TR >= CL.
