Backdated invoices from previous year

We're adding our old documents to OpenERP and experience the following behavior. When a backdated invoice is added with the correct billing period and due date, upon validation it gets the sequence number just like a new invoice from the current year i.e. 201305XXX instead of, say, 201201XXX. Is it possible to set invoice numbers according to the time period they're tied to?

You may do a new journal and adjust it with the required sequence. For example, a new journal called Previous Sales and then set the sequence to year/ and set the next sequence number.

Hello, This means, that the new journal should have the year sequence manually defined? There is no way to make the year part of the journal, based on the date of the invoice set? Thank you Theo
