You need to add that company first in Allowed Companies, defined in Access Rights tab. Add that company, you want to assign to a user, in that tab and after that, Add it from main Company field. It will work fine.

Thanks, Priyesh Solanki

Thanks Priyesh. where is the place to select 'Allowed Companies' ?

In User form, Second tab Access Rights , at the top side! You will see Allowed companies over there. Add your company in that , you want to assign to that user.

It seems that You did not assign Multi Companies group to your current logged user. If you are login with Administrator, Open its form view, Go to Access Rights and at below, Tick the boolean 'Multi Companies' , Save it. Reload it. Re-open the User form view and you will be able to see Allowed Companies tab in Access Rights.

Check 'Multi-Company' checkbox from 'Administrator' user panel, then you can see the 'Allowed Company' filed in user's settings. Resolved for me, Thank you.
