how do I customize Next invoice number?

on 2/21/13, 5:01 PM 4,107 views

In setting under Accounting & Finance there is a setting:

Next invoice number SAJ/%(year)s/ 4

Is this the place to setup the invoice numbering? I need it to write 0001/SAJ/01/2013 (invoice number/SAJ/custom code/year)

Also in the printed invoice there should be the date with hours:min:sec (this is a legal requirement)

Is there anywhere documentation for customizing this fields?

you can print current time for time

To answer your first question:

  1. login as admin Go to Settings / Users
  2. Choose "admin" in the first column of user list
  3. switch to form view and click on "Edit"
  4. On tab "access rights" activate "Technical Features"
  5. Save & Click on the company logo to reload menus
  6. Go to menu Settings / Technical / Sequences & Identifiers / Sequences
  7. Choose "Account Default Sales Journal" and switch to form view
  8. Now you have to configure the sequence details to your example.

Configuration of sequence

Prefix: "" (empty)

Suffix: /SAJ/01/%(year)s

Number Padding: 4

Increment number: 1

Next number: 1

Implementation: No gap

Your question "Also in the printed invoice there should be the date with hours:min:sec (this is a legal requirement)" should be probably separated in a new question.
