Does anybody know what is the use of stock 'stock_journal_id' in incoming shipment

AFAIK it is only used for reporting purposes

It is not only for "reporting purposes"; this journal is creating accounting entries in the stock accounts! And I have no ideas about which settings that are triggering those entries. For instance - with my configuration which is certainly FAR FROM OPTIMUM - a POS transaction (a sale) is creating 6 accounting entries on stock accounts

Does any one have a precise and complete understanding of the stock journal in liaison with the specific settings of product categories?

Some scenario - from basic to more complete ones - with full explanations related to default accounting settings (warehouse, product categories etc...) would be absolutely helpful

stock_journal_id refers to a different type of journal than the accounting journal. The Stock Journal can be defaulted on the warehouse location settings.

you are not talking about the same things. We have two stock journal in openerp but it concern two different models

@ Lorenzo Battistini you are talking about stock.journal

@ Ad Libitom you are talking about account.journal model

i will try to understand the relation between them and explain it to you tomorrow.

Hi benos20: did you found some spare time to explain the roles and relations (if any) between the 2 "stock journals". This would help me and probably a bunch of others.
