How do I Reconfigure Charts of Accounts on an existing database...

on 11/7/14, 12:27 AM 1,187 views

I would like to know how can I reconfigure the Chart of Accounts...

Say for Example, I have installed Indian COA while installing the account module, later I want to change it, say I want to change it to a Brazilian COA...

So how can to reconfigure it Brazilian COA, and at the same time what would happen to the records say Invoices/ payments which were done earlier using Indian COA....

Any Help appreciated...

Once you install the indian chart of accounts and done any entries in those accounts. such as debit and credit, there is no way , you can change any of these , reason is existing chart of accounts creates journal entries which is mapped with the account_id which is very important aspect when creating any transaction or generating reports Another reason is every chart of accounts , upon installing creates its own template and co related with account types along its ID.

Other than creating/setting up new database with new COA

Accourding to your needs and scenario, you have to create a new DB and install the Brazilian COA.

Ya I know, but still I don't think creating a new DB is the feasible solution...
