Inventory UOM Locked

What permission on an item drives the Inventory UOM being locked? We currently have a good mix of items with the ability to edit the UOM after creation and some you can't.

Problem Upgrading from 3.8.4 to 4.5.2 (poitem_soitem_id, poitem_wohead_id)


We've been using Postbooks successfully for a number of years, and finally decided it was time to update from version 3.8.4 to 4.5.2.

According to version 2.2.5 of the Updater, the update of the database (a copy, of course) through intermediate versions and up to 4.5.2 was successful. However, when testing the 4.5.2 database with the 4.5.2 GUI client, we're running into a problem with Purchase Orders. Read more »

PO Error with pohead / whsinfo

So, I am a little naive when it comes to this stuff, but I do have some IT support here to help when I get some responses. 

I am creating a test database and gaining familiarity with the program, but I know very little about the programming side of things. In attempting to create a PO for some of the items I've added, I am getting an error when I start the PO and add a vendor, and when I attempt to add a line item after. Can you help point me in the right direction of what I'm missing (if this is what is causing the error)?

CSV Importer Issue - BOM Import

I am trying to import via CSVImp into xTuple. I am trying to import BOMs, one at a time. The item is already created in xTuple, just the BOM needs to be imported. I have a CSV file with the information required. Upon importing in CSVImp, I get an error message saying that the item number must be an integer, not a string. The item numbers in xTuple are all strings (ie. ASY 016). How do I successfully import BOMs? Thank you!

column bankaccnt_rec_accnt_id in the bankaccnt table?


I notice this column in the bank account table: bankaccnt_rec_accnt_id


There doesn't appear to be any field in the bank account settings form to fill this column in the database.  What is it for?  Is it no longer in use?

understanding the forward update settings for G/L accounts



Each G/L account has a "forward update" setting, stored in the boolean column accnt.accnt_forwardupdate


What exactly does this mean?  When somebody is importing a new G/L account list, how do they decide which accounts need this setting?

Profit centre use

I am setting up Postbooks and the profit centre is explicitly linked to my COA, meaning I effectively have to duplicate my COA for each profit centre as well as creating items to post to each combination. Is there a way to add profit centre to a transaction similar to classes in QuickBooks? Another dimension could be suitable.
