I'm trying to finish out the expenses in v7 but my expenses are forever stuck in awaiting payment.
I create an expense. Approve the expense. See the expense is set to state Awaiting Payment. See the account entries are created. But now there is nothing else to do and no other forms created. Reading up in the past it appears the old way was for OpenERP to create supplier payments but not anymore. I have confirmed there is nothing in supplier payments, however there isn't anything anywhere else.
So how to I get the expense out of waiting payment and into a done state with the appropriate accounting entries?
This is the workflow:
- Create, Submit, Approve and Generate Accounting Entries for the Expense.
- Create a Supplier Payment (money leaving your company) to the employee who submitted the Expense. All unpaid expenses will be listed in the Payment screen, allowing you to select which ones to pay and have the total amount calculated.
- On validation of a valid Payment, any completely reconciled expense will be marked as paid.
Yes, I have solved the situation, let me explain
The issue is that the account where the credit shows in the journal item that was created from the expense has to be a payable account, only then will you be able to see it when u try to create a supplier payment. if it is not a payable account u wont see the entry in the supplier payment and then you run into errors.
Try that out and let me know if you have any more issues. follow the steps mentioned above but make sure the credit account is a payable account, and the debit account can be whatever expense account u choose, when u go to supplier payment, choose the employees name and you will see the entry below, choose the bank account u wish to make the payment with abd then u can validate. easy.
