I am wondering whether it is possible to create a contact and write an invoice without filling in the fields 'account payable' and 'account receiveable'. We are a small company with many hundreds of individual customers, and it would be too much work to add a separate account for every single one. Many thanks!


From wich country are you ? Because accounting is different from a country to another. In France, those fields are automatically filled up.

Its not lyk that exactly. Account receivable and payable is a property field on OpenERP. When the property will create then you don't have to assigned/create account everytime.

For solution we have a two option here. 1) Install the COA(chart of account) on OpenERP based on your country, or you can use the custom chart of account. 2) You can manually create this property field. Go to setting>Parameter>Configuration Parameter and create the record for receivable and payable account.

why do you have to make separate account for every customer? you can just make 1 account receiveable for all the customer..
