Initially everything was working well in the multi-currency environment, Am using two currencies; base is USD and secondary is UGX. Invoices in UGX valid fine but the error below occurs for USD invoices:

Error occurred while validating the field(s) currency_id: The selected account of your Journal Entry forces to provide a secondary currency. You should remove the secondary currency on the account or select a multi-currency view on the journal.

I dont want to remove the secondary because the invoices in UGX currency are attached to that same Account as the USD invoices but i dont seem to find the "multi-currency view" option on the journal. what can I do?

I have solved my issue: Am using Ubuntu server 12.04, the problem was a zombie process that had refused to stop even when the server restarted. i traced that zombie to be an openerp process, once i was able to kill the process and then restarted openerp-server, everything came back to normal.
