When I began using Odoo, I was creating my invoice directly in "Accounting", without using the Sales Orden process.

Now I would like to convert all this Invoices in Sales Order because the SO allow to control inventory/wharehouse.

Is this possible? 

As far as I know is not posible

Just do the Sales order firstly, the convert it into invoice.


No this is not possible.

Sale ==> Invoice is possible, but reverse is not possible. The reason is, in Sale order there is Warehouse selection is needed whereas Invoicing has no control on Stock operations. So your purpose is not possible.

How to make possible your purpose ?

1) If No. of invoices are not too much then please create manually sale orders,

2) You can Export invoices and make importable file for Sale order. 

3) Don't create Sale order, Just create Delivery Order and adjust stock. Create Sale order from next time. 

Thanks Hiren! I tried to export invoice in .CSV and to import in Sale Order but it didn't work out. I have a poor experience in Odoo and don't know a lot about import/export features...

Would you recommend this solution (exporting supplier invoices and then creating PO and PO lines) in order to add costs to products with no cost (because no PO was created)?
