How to use Sales Journal

on 4/1/15, 4:22 AM 1,127 views


In Product Master, I did not setup the Income / Expense Account.  Then, in Sales Journal (SAJ), I changed the Default Debit Account and Default Credit Account to other account code. 

However, when I create invoice from sales orders, I found that the Account Code (in invoice lines) is still using the default one (200000 Product Sales) instead of the one I changed.

I would like to know is there any other setting I need to do?

When purchasing or selling a product, Odoo will first consider the account specified in the product. If there is no account defined for the product, then will consider the account specified in the product category.

Default Income and Expense accounts in category loads from the Configuration Parameters. To change it, you need to go to Settings > Technical > Parameters > Company Properties and find property_account_income_categ parameter.

In Sale Journal the default credit and debit account allow to automatically generate counterpart entries when you are entering data through Journal Items.
