Analytic account field on timesheet is your Contract/Project on which you are filling the timesheets. So you are encoding timesheet on that analytic account and later you can invoice to your client.

Analytic Account mainly used for costing purpose in OpenERP. For example if the IT company has create analytic account for some projects (R&D or Offshore) and the user is working on R&D department then he has to fill the timesheet in that analytic account. So in timesheet user has to record the works he/she has done for that Analytic Account/ Project. Same time you can create analytic account on which you can raise invoice to your client for example offshore project so whatever timesheet done on that offshore project/ Offshore analytic account company (Account Manager) can raise invoice.

After recording time-sheet activity, it depends on you whether you want to create an invoice for that or not. OpenERP allows you to create an invoice for particular time-sheet activities, for which you want.

This Error appear when make it invoice 100% Error!

You cannot modify an invoiced analytic line! Why?

Because Invoice has been already created for the time-sheet activity and once invoice has been created, You can't modify it!
