I am configurating a new V7 OpenERP.

When I create the chart of account, the following message appears when I press SAVE after select the "Configurable Account Chart template" in the template field.

Constraint Error

The name of the period must be unique per company!

I have delected the fascial year and create again. It did not solve the problem.

What should I do now?

This error occurs because the wizard want to create a new journal and this exists.

You can delete the affected journal and them run the wizard again.

It is a new data, there I don't find any entry in the Journal section. I only see some period name in the selection box. Should I delete these entry as well? How can I delete them?
