How does OpenERP keep account balances?

How does OpenERP (v7.0) keep account balances (for company and secondary currencies)?

Does it keep balances in some table(s) or always calculate in reports based on journal history?

I've read somewhere that account_move_line records keep the balance as of journal entry, but I cannot find this in my v7.0 environment.

Standard OpenERP does not store account balances - they are calculated dynamically as required (eg in the chart of accounts display). There has been work done byu c2c to add triggers to create monthly totals that can then be used.

Thanks for the answer. Maybe it was about the c2c module that I read before.
