I got this errror when I select my customizes chart of accounts. When I try to change the code of existing account in system to be unique, It gets no error, but I'm wondering because in other COA like in US eventhough they have the same code in account templates, their is no error in installing that.. Please Help..

I don't see any duplicate codes in this list of the US Chart of Account codes:

I also don't see any duplicate codes in the US Chart of Account templates:

  • 42800 is listed twice, once for the Agricultural template and once for the Financial Services template

  • 51800 is listed twice, once for the Advertising template and once for the Construction template

Since you don't use two templates at a time, these are not duplicates.

Perhaps you can post the duplicates you are seeing?

Not in that.. In COA Template..
