Hi Guyss!!!

I have been working on the functional aspect of OpenERP Account Journals and struct to a functionality:-

If I have defined a sales journal and input its default debit account and default credit account where exactly these two accounts comes into picture in odoo.

I have gone through given scenario but did not found the default debit and default credit account working such as:-

  1. When I create a sales order and validate the invoices at journal entries I can only see account receivable debited to income account defined on product.
  2. While posting journal entries also , we have to manually select the account for creating entries

Please help me out where exactly default debit and default credit account of sales journal is pitching in ERP accounting entries.!!!

When you install accounting module than automatically default journal will be created on journals. whatever the accounting chart you configured while installing accounting module those account will be set to journal respectively. if you have successfully installed accounting module than it should work. you don't need to create manual journal entries.

Hi Anil Kesariya Thanks for your response!! Yes , I do understand , default there is no debit and credit account configured either on default sales or purchase journal created by ERP when installing accounting modules!! Now when I configured manually accounts on Default sales journals and default purchase journal , where would those account will get encountered. Since OpenERP/Odoo team has given the option to tagg default debit and default credit account to the journals, I am curious to know , If I map the account to them where it will hit ! which accounting process use those accounts!! unlike when we configure on payment journal(bank and cheque/Cash) it's default debit and credit account are showing journal entries at the time of payment either paying invoices or doing any account voucher. I hope you understood!!!
