Openerp Accounting Reports

I installed openerp on my test server and created products. I then created purchase orders for the products,made the payments and posted the journals. Next was to create sale orders, receive cash and post the journals.

Going to the financial reports(legal), i find the cost of goods sold is the same as the purchases despite the fact that i didn't sell the entire stock...what could be the issue here? Where could i be wrong?

Your journal entries will tell you how much is being booked to each account at each stage in the sale to cash workflow.

Repeat your process and, after each step, look at the journal entries that are made.

This will help you understand where the problem is. Then, look at your configuration for the accounts in that step.

The accounting entries being updated are: Debit Debtors, Credit Product sales

The accounting entries for debtors and product sales are not contributing to cost of goods sold or purchases. Keep looking. If you are seeing amounts on the financial reports they must be coming from somewhere.

Any clue on where these figures could be coming from?

Not without a lot more information. What account do you refer to when you post about "cost of goods sold" and have you checked the journal to see when the entries affecting this account were posted and what caused them to be posted?
