Version: 7.0


I have and error when I go in Settings > Confirguration > Accounting after OpenERP installation. I fill in 'EUR' as the default company currency and make save but the error says "The following fields are invalid: start date, end date, perdiods"

However I think I have properly configured it.

Accounting > Configuration > Fiscal Year

 Fiscal Year     2010-2011 / Code     10-11 /  Start Date     12/25/2010 / End Date     03/31/2011

The company has been created on 12/25/2010, the fiscal year ends on the last day of march

And the periods are

Open period 2010    / code=00/2010    start=12/17/2010    end=12/17/2010   /     status=Open / Opening/Closing Period=checked
12/2010  /  code=12/2010   start=12/17/2010   end=12/31/2010   /     status=Open /
03/2011  /  code=03/2011   start=03/17/2011    end=03/31/2011   /     status=Open / Opening/Closing Period=checked

Does anyone has a suggestion about this problem ?

Did you see the values in the othr fields like Defaul sale tax or Next invoice number?

Try to create a fiscal year 2014
