Hello, i am new to OpenERP 7.

I checked several samples on the web to allow to create user groups and allow a user to access several companies.

My surprise is, when using the sofware. The following items are missed: 1. Groups 2. Companies Structure.

Are there any difference in between the commercial license and the community license? Or i am doing something wrong?

Thanks Mr. Ray.

The problem was that the Allowed Companies field was not visitble. I checked the Technical features checkbox for the administrator user, logout and login again. Then it appears.

The problem now, is that users can not access any document. they receive a security message.
