Using Supplier Invoice Number on Check Lines (v7)

Hi All,

Is it possible to use the Supplier Invoice Number field when writing checks? By default it appears to be using the Journal Entry number which is confusing to our suppliers. I can't seem to find a way to get the supplier invoice number on there though - has anyone else tried this? I don't see why it would default to using the journal number on something that is meant to be sent to a customer.

Try installing https://www.odoo.com/apps/modules/8.0/account_invoice_reference/

This makes many changes to the way reference information is stored on Invoices and Journal Entries - I think this makes the Invoice number in payments (including checks).
