How to manage Expenses in v7

I just installed OpenERP and trying to figure out how to manage expenses and then bill them to customer.

I entered all my expenses and got them approved. They are in status Waiting payment. How do I make a payment for the expenses? When I click "Generate Accounting Entries" I'm getting following error: The employee must have a payable account set on his home address

Thanks in advance, Oleg

I take it you are using the HR expense module. Each employee who will be entering expenses are required to have a home address in their employee record (HR - Employees). You can use the same address as the one in the user record if the employee is also a user. Once you have that done, you will be able to generate the entries. The Accounting entries will create a payable to the employee at this point, but you can change the partner if you want, then you can post your entries.

I hope this helps
