It is almost in version 7.0!

The functionality has been developed by OpenERP and simply extends the existing cost methods to include LIFO and FIFO.

Currently it is available in a separate branch at https://code.launchpad.net/~openerp-dev/openobject-addons/7.0-lifo-fifo-qdp

1) From Settings --> Purchases, check Compute product cost based average/FIFO/LIFO cost

2) Then, on each product, configure the costing method

You need to work directly with the Launchpad branch. See the help at https://doc.openerp.com/6.0/developer/1_1_Introduction/2_launchpad/ and follow the instructions in the "Working with Branch" section using bzr branch lp:~openerp-dev/openobject-addons/7.0-lifo-fifo-qdp instead of bzr branch lp:openerp

Hi, I'm currently using the version in http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~openerp-dev/openobject-addons/7.0-lifo-fifo-qdp It's giving me problems when I cancel and validate again an Inventory, but I don't know how to provide a reproducible example cuz I have some custom modules that rely on Inventory and Stock Moves as well. The error is: "Something went wrong finding stock moves [][]10.2123" and it seems that at cancellation time it writes a bunch of stock moves in "done" state but with qty_remaining set to zero I can solve by dropping qty_remaining column and stock_move_matching table then upgrading the module (it recalculate everything) May I ask you if it has been tested in such situation and if it works out-of-the-box on a clean installation with a long history of Stock Moves? How the stock_move_matching table is meant to work? What is the branch http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~openerp-dev/openobject-addons/7.0-lifo-fifo-qdp2? Thanks
