Hi Anand,

Same with Anwar, it is double entries concept. We cannot have only credit or debit. It has to be balance both side.

It is not real case if your business has Unbalance openning. It is valid warning from Odoo.

Hi Anand,
As per the information you provided, you need to add credit leg also in the said journal entry. Its double entry system that is the reason you are getting valid message.

Hello, Community!

I trying to import Opening balance in odoo 10.0 but its giving me following warning. 

"Cannot create unbalanced journal entry. "

I have created Opening Balance Journal as,
Journal Name: Opening Balance 
Type: Miscellaneous
Code: OPB
Default Debit Account: Opening Expense account [ Account Configuration : Name: Opening Expesnse Account, and Type: Expense]
Defalut Credit Account : Opening Income account [ Account Configuration:  Name: Opening Income Account, and Type: Other Income]

Now when I try to import My following Data for account.move.line, at that time above warning raised and not allowed to import journal entries in account.move.line, As I remember in 8.0 same warning was at time of posting entry but something changed in 10.0.
