So normaly i would say everything is fine, but he hasn’t recognized the customer an the items. An we did not understand why.
Is there another trace in the file System? can you tell me where ?

Kind regards

Check Error Log or Error Snapshot for error traceback. or check if you have any custom script on Quotation might be Customer field is cleared after Form refresh or onload?

We have no Custom script in use and in the log in /home/frappe/frappe-bench/logs there i can’t see any error.
in worker.error.log

09:57:06 default: frappe.utils.background_jobs.execute_job(async=True, event=None, job_name=u’frappe.utils.global_search.update_global_search’, kwargs={‘doc’: <frappe.core.doctype.communication.communication.Communication object at 0x7fe2b888e610>}, method=u’frappe.utils.global_search.update_global_search’, site=u’site1.local’, user=u’frank.woischke’) (c77fb100-5da0-41e6-8a62-718e2298140b)
09:57:06 default: Job OK (c77fb100-5da0-41e6-8a62-718e2298140b)
09:57:06 Result is kept for 500 seconds

that ist the only log

Can anybody helps me?. We have Gott a big Presentation For erpnext on thursday.

Kind regards
