linking sales order number to invoice number

on 4/9/14, 2:49 PM 986 views

I want to be able to use the Sales Order number generated by Openerp as the Invoice number. For example, if I have a sales order, SO1000123, I want the invoice number to be INV1000123. How can I make that linkage? Craig

What happens if the SO needs to be delivered in two parts (something is back ordered and the client is invoiced for the first shipment, then needs a second invoice for a second shipment)? What happens if the client places 10 orders with you in a month and wants a single invoice at the end of the month? What happens if there is a mistake on the order (or the invoice) and you need to cancel the invoice you sent them and send a new one? Do these cases apply? Your request sounds like it would make easy of these examples very difficult to handle with the change you've suggested.
