Is it possible to have analytic accounts on purchase orders with "Control supplier invoice on incoming shipments"?

on 9/10/14, 3:50 AM 1,178 views

We have installed a new Odoo v8 installation, with Purchases & Accounting modules (and some others).  In Configuration / Accounting, "Analytic accounting" is ticked.  In Purchases / Purchase Order, "Analytic accounting for purchases" is ticked, and Purchases / Default Invoicing Settings is set to "Control supplier invoice on incoming shipments".  We have Sales and Purchases journals, linked to the Analytic Journals: Sales, and Purchases.

When we create a purchase order, we include the analytic account on the purchase order lines, and proceed to "Purchase Confirmed".  We receive the products, and the reference becomes available in Purchases / Invoice Control / On Incoming Shipments.  When we select "Create Invoice", the Analytic Account for each line on the new supplier's invoice is blank, so after this invoice is validated and paid, there is no record of the purchase in the analytic account.

Two questions:

1) At what point in the purchasing workflow should the items be visible in the analytic account, is it only once the supplier's invoice is "Validated"?

2) Is the automatic transferral of the analytic account from the PO to the Supplier Invoice broken in v8 (nightly build 20140906)?

it would appear it is broken - I have just tried in my test V8 with the same result (ie analytic account is not being passed to invoice)
