Re: v1.3.36 fails update on add transaction


Thank you for the explanation.

These requirements does not exist in Denmark, and hence is not stated on
invoices received :) - the government requires only that invoice series
be in succession number and date wise (ie. without missing numbers) and
that I can lock previous years, once closed.
