Odoo Help


How can I see the balance on every Journal Item? I added "balance" to the view but it isn't showing the correct balance.

My goal is it to show the balance of the financial account on every single entry. For example:

Entry1 debit 10.- credit 0 balance 10

Entry2 debit   0.- credit 5 balance 5 and so on..

So I added the balance in the tree view of the financial account: <field name="balance"/>

Now it shows another column with the balance but it's not in the proper sequence. The balance is just randomly arranged. How can I show the correct balance per entry? Is there another way? or maybe an additional module already exists? Thanks a lot for the help

Thank you this already helped me alot. But it was not exactly the module I was looking for. This module just calculates the total balance of an account. Do you know if there is a module wich shows the balance on every entry correctly like for example a bank statement?

Yes, I see this now. I thought this module showed actual balance.
