Technically, they are different OpenERP objects. Invoices are
account.invoice and receipts are
The most important feature of sale receipts is to allow direct payment within the transaction instead of recording receivable and make the payment and reconciliation later in another step.
As receipts are made to record simple entries, many invoice features are not available like payment terms, product and quantity, sales person, ...etc.
I think receipt views are missing very important feature; foreign currency support. It is not possible to select receipt currency in the default view.
The difference is the receipt on Voucher is a quittance not an invoice.
Example: Sale Receipt -> You go to a shop and pay directly. The Shop Owner give you a Sale Voucher. This Voucher is capture as a Sale Receipt. Sale Invoice -> You order a kitchen and get a Invoice, which you will pay when you get the kitchen. This Invoice is capture as a Sale Invoice.
You can read this in the OpenERP documentation.
"When you sell products to a customer, you can give him a true invoice or a Sales Receipt, which is also called Customer Receipt. Sales Receipts are merely a kind of sales ticket and not a real invoice.
When the sales receipt is confirmed, OpenERP creates journal items automatically and you can record the customer payment related to this sales receipt. The easy invoicing system does not require extensive accounting setup, so you will be up and running quickly!"
You can read this on this website: doc.openerp.com/6.1/book/3/3_6/invoice_payment/ "Under Simple Customer Receipts" The documentation is for Version 6.1 but this is also valid for the oterh Versions.
In my "real world" experience, while Invoices always record the full amount of a "trade", Receipts travel in the reverse direction of money, regardless of whether the value is the full, or partial, payment of a trade. As distinct acts, for distinct purposes, a distinct record is required.
I expect, but can't yet confirm (I'm learning too) that the "OpenERP world" follows the "real world" in such things.

The measure difference is : In Supplier Invoice you can record product wise invoice, and when you want to record direct without product so you can use purchase receipt. And same condition with Customer Invoice when you want to record your sales product wise so you can use Customer invoice option, but when you want to record your sales without product so you can record Sales Receipt option.
