Hi to all, Does any one knows how to fix this constraints error :

Constraint Error

A tax fiscal position could be defined only once time on same taxes.

This happened when i create another child company and  then configured it's chart of accounts.

PS. i created child company 2 days after i have created my database.


Any response is much appreciated.

Sounds like your pointing your fiscal position to a tax that does not belong to the company the fiscal position is being configured for. 

Also, how did you install the chart of accounts? Did you go to settings --> configuration --> accounting and select the option there, or was it installed manually?

Make sure your user is set to multi companies as well. This should show you the drop-down boxes for other companies to be configured on every applicable object. Check how fiscal position is configured like that.

i did the former sir, settings --> configuration --> accounting.

You can, but you should not have. When does the error appear? What exact steps are taken? This is al quite important to know. Another option would be to search the code for the exact error and see what causes it.
