Trying to configure sales module in openerp. i have created a demo quotation and sale order but iwhen generating an invoice from the sales order iget this error No currency rate associated for currency 177 for the given period.

How do i set up my currency correctly? Is it possible to edit my default currency?



You need to make sure you have a currency rate that is older or on the first day of the invoice accounting period. You can test it by setting a currency rate in a past year.



I have encountered this error. The solution is to make sure you have at least two entries for the currency rate on the currencies configuration (Accounting->Miscellenous->Currencies) for the base currency and the counterpart currency.  The currency rates must be set with a date that is, on or before the order date. That is just the solution. I had to debug it on my development environment to figure out why the system raises that constriant error, depite having entered a single currency rate. Thanks. Please vote my answer if it solves your problem.

Add period (date)in curreny against which your are creating your invoice.

1. Your invoice number SAJ/0001 , invoice date: 12/12/2013
2. Go to currency configuaration and add period of year 2013
3. That it!!!

Hi, Is there a way to get over the currency error ? I am getting the error when trying to post a invoice for past period. I do not have *Accounting -> Setting -> Millestore -> Currency* menu path added. Highly appreciate any support on this. Thank you and kind regards, Claudiu

Go to Accounting -> Setting -> Millestore -> Currency . Select your company's currency and in his form view , define one line about rate.

Good Work
