Hi Friends, One of my client have a requirement. He wants his Inventory to be updated as and when he creates a Sales/Purchase Invoice. But he don't want to create any Delivery Note/Incoming shipment documents. I'm not sure how to do this in OpenERP as the inventory gets affected only when we create Delivery/Incoming Shipment documents. Can anybody please help me with this

I do not think this is possible with any official OpenERP module. But, it can be easily done using a custom module.

You need to inherit from account.invoice model to create and process a stock move (and create the stock valuation entry if you are using anglo_saxon module) upon invoice validation. You may override action_move_create() method to do the required actions before or after calling the parent method.

Hello Mohammad Ali, Thanks lot for your inputs. Do you know if there is any module already available for this purpose from the community?

I only found this launchpad blueprint. I suggest you recheck your process. Creating a delivery and invoice from SO could be just 2 mouse clicks.
