I am just setting up OpenERP. I have created account "Accounts Receivable", but when I create a supplier the account does not show up in the list of accounts that can be used for the supplier. Actually, none of the accounts I create show up. I am a noob obviously. Thanks for the help.

The dropdown only shows accounts that are setup as 'Internal Type' = 'receivable'.

Make sure you get some help setting up your chart of accounts. You will run into a LOT of problems with inventory and the flow of cash if it isn't correct when you start.

The best advice I can give you is to configure OpenERP to use one of the supplied Chart of Accounts and Account Templates.

Start with the documentation:
