How to modify default debit account of the HR_Expenses modul ?

on 12/23/15, 11:19 AM 858 views


My problem is when I generate accounting entries for an expenses report, the default debit account for goodies(in the accounting document) is 401100. Or, i would like it'll be the 428610.

How can i do this please ?

Thank you :)

The account Odoo uses for the debit entry is the Expense account defined on the Product being used in the Expense submission.

If the product is 'Goodies', change the Expense account on the Accounting tab.

I guessed you set the l10n_fr

You have to set the 428xxx instead the 401xxx in the partner affiliated to the selected employee for this hr_expense

Thank you for your answer RAY.

But it wasn't what i would mean. In fact, in the accounting document of the Expense Submition, the balance of accounting entries on "601 - Pruchases" and "445664 - VAT" is 401 by default, and I want is 428.

I try your solution but it's the account 601 which is modify by the 428.

I hope you will have a better understanding of my issue.
