If you’re self hosted try bench —site <site-name> migrate

frappe@erp:~/frappe-bench$ bench --site site1.local migrate

problem still same when click Chart of Account

bench version
bench update

tried updated and refresh the chart of account page, same error.

I expected you to also share the output of

and perhaps bench update

Reinstall or add a new site
bench drop-site site1.local
bench new-site site1.local
bench —site site1.local install-app erpnext

We Experience the exact same issue

tried but still same problem

i done manual way with this

then i remove company and create new company, fixed

by manually add this column into company table will fixed this issue.

Just encountered same issue after upgrading to latest version! Is there any proper fix for this please?

Kind regards,

Also, this is a live setup so dropping the site or removing the Company is not an option…

ERPNext: v11.1.28 (master)
Frappe Framework: v11.1.27 (master)


Not necessarily drop company.

Just add new column “allow_account_creation_against_child_company” as check datatype into company table in setup - customize form.
