Journals: Voucher, Items and Entry

I need to create a journal with the ability to select the debit account and the credit account without getting these things automatically, how?

Also meanwhile, if I inserted items, and I need to do modification (for example to modify the partner), then I have to erase the record and recreating it. How I can resolve this? I need to be able to do modification without need to erase and reconfigure.

One more thing: what if I need to create a journals without being forced to select the partner (in other words, I need to create journal without partner), is it possible?

Regards Bilal

do you mean "journal" or "journal entry"? cause there's no partner field on the journal

I mean the journal entry or the journal voucher (in any of them), how?

with a journal entry, partner is an optional field, so there should not be an issue for you. Plus you need to specify the account.

If you find you need to modify journals a lot you could leave in draft (saved but not confirmed) state until you are ready to confirm. Once you confirm you do need to do a reversal to correct - this is exactly what should happen.

I am not able to determine the destination account when I am doing a Journal Entry. My problem is:

While I am creating the journal entry, I entered first journal item and I was able to select the account and to be debit. Now, when I need to add the next item (which should be credit), it is adding it with an account automatically, it does not give me a chance to select the destination account. How I can the destination account (same as I determined the source account)?

What I need to do exactly that I need to create a journal entry with debit and credit with the ability to determine the source account and the destination account (without placing any accounts by defaults). HOW?

I tried to remove the default accounts from the Configuration --> Journals --> Journals, but also it did not resolve my problem while entering the Journal entry (the items), because it is inserting the destination account automatically and it is putting it the same as the source account (because no default account is configured for this journal).

I tried to modify the destination account, but it does not allow me, it gives me (open resource, set to default value, set as default, action, report, entries, unreconsiled entries) and when I selected "open resource" it just gave me the destination account details, and did not let me select the required account).

Is it not allowed in OpenERP to determine the destination account? So I am only allowed to determine the source account in the journal entries?

the same account is defaulted in on the second line but you can edit the line & change it

Yes that is correct. The reason that I was not able to change the destination account from the default account to another account that I was using the browser mozilla and it seems something in the browser was causing this "specifically that the machine that is running the browser is ubuntu based". This need to be checked on the browser to check if some cookies or something need to be removed or enabled to overcome this problem. But using the GTK, it is working fine. Thanks alot for your kindly help.
