Integrity Error when creating invoice from purchase order - account_id not set

When I try to generate an invoice based on purchase order, it gives me this error:

Integrity Error

The operation cannot be completed, probably due to the following:
- deletion: you may be trying to delete a record while other records still reference it
- creation/update: a mandatory field is not correctly set

[object with reference: account_id - account.id]


I have set up accounts on the product category to which purchased products belong and supplier has his own account properties. I really dont know which account the system wants. The invoicing process of the purchase order is based on received shipments.

The Supplier needs an account set for Account Payable (on the Accounting tab of the Partner form view) and each Product needs an account set for Expense Account (on the Accounting tab of the Product form view), or the same information set on the Category that the product belongs to (values on parents of the Category are not taken into account).

Check again - at least one of these isn't set.
