I have a problem with decimal precision. I've seen a lot of posts about it on the net but I think it's for earlier version. I just want to specify 5 decimals in the product cost price.

First, thanks for your help. But i didn't find the system configuration.

First go to

Settings -> Users -> Select user and under access rights tab check technical features

Reload page (F5)

Go To

Settings -> Database Structure -> Decimal Accuracy

You must restart the server for changes to take effect. In Windows, go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. Find OpenERP in the list. Stop then Start the service.

Hi, we have found a problem in this regard. The thing is that changing the number of digits in the "Product Price" not only changes the digits in "Sale Price" but also in "Cost Price". Is there any way to handle these two concepts (Sales Price / Cost Price) separately?

Not from configuration but using customization you can do that.

change your Account precision to 4 "you already did that"
change your default company currency Rounding Factor to 0.0001, You can find it under Settings ->Configuration ->Accounting ->Options, Default company currency.
on the file /addons/point_of_sale/static/src/js, open the widget_base.js and make these changes:
    line 25 

this.currency = {symbol: '$', position: 'after', rounding: 0.0001}; // change the 0.01 to 0.0001
    line 32 

amount = Math.round(amount*10000)/10000; // change 100 to 10000

Go to menu Settings / Technical / Database Structure / Decimal Accuracy , open Product Price and change the field Digits to your needs.

If you can't see this menu then install module decimal_precision.


Hello in system configuration, Database estructure menu you will get each decimal precision option. Product Decimal precision is what you need to set.


i set all to 4 same thing 2.250
