chart of account import/export

on 4/18/14, 3:40 PM 1,453 views

Hello, I just downloaded a fresh openERP and installed it, with some Apps (accounting + invoicing). I installed the default french chart of account. When I export it as a csv, and try to reimport it I receive the following message : "Warning! You cannot change the type of account to 'view' type as it contains journal items! "

Do you have an idea of the cause and how to circumvent that? Thanks

You need to learn about dependencies between OpenERP modules on the one hand and between accounting entities on the other. Furthermore you need to learn how OpenERP handles internal and external record identifiers.
