Re: Company renaming itself

Many companies in their lifetime changes company name. This should be a feature within ledgersmb so that it keeps history as this is very important for audit.

If regenerating old invoices is the primary concern, how about this:
- add a table that keeps history of company names (name, date changed, ......)
- modify the module that generates invoices to pull the company name from the new table according to where the invoice create date falls in terms of dates.

Hi all,
One of my customers assumes a different name every two years (as in they "rename" the company every two years).
How should I handle this with LedgerSMB?
So far, I've come up with two approaches:
1. Rename the existing company
However, this would cause (regenerated) older invoices to appear under the new name -- hence loosing history.
2. Create a new company with the new name
However, this breaks credit management: short term I have to manage the credit line spread across two companies AND it breaks the line of history where I can find all old invoices under the same company.
Any other ideas?
