The proper (and in most countries only legal) way to do this is to close the accounts at the end of an appropriate period, establish the new accounts and to transfer the balances from the old to the new accounts. Anything else would be considered as illegal in all countries I know.

Thanks, It seems useful answer.

Citation:

    # For legal reason (forbiden to modify journal entries which belongs to a closed fy or period), Forbid to modify
    # the code of an account if journal entries have been already posted on this account. This cannot be simply
    # 'configurable' since it can lead to a lack of confidence in Odoo and this is what we want to change.

 

What happen if I change code via SQL direct in database ? Because its must need to change for a database. ??? Does OpenERP stop to work ???
