How to add additional costs to an purchase/invoice?

You have made an purchasing order and got the items you bought but when you get the invoice from the supplier there are some additional costs to pay.. like for ex. transport.. I could not add this to start with as I didn't know the cost.

Now when we have all the facts and cost that should be payed, how to update the purchasing order before or during payment so all the accounting's will be correct after payment and accounting.

You can keep track of those "extra" costs with analytic accounts. You can find further information on how to work with analytic accounts on the e-books

Would that be a std. module that is installed as std. or do you need to install this extra? And would this be the best and simplest way to do?

it's already included with OpenERP, and it will help you track your costs

I have been looking in to this, but I still don't know how to use it.. I here by attach a some text: """In daily use, it is useful to mark the analytic account on each purchase invoice. The analytic account is the one to which the costs of that purchase should be allocated. When the invoice is approved, it will automatically generate the entries for both the general and the corresponding analytic accounts. """ What means by "In daily use, it is useful to mark the analytic account on each purchase invoice" I can't find any where to "click" or activate on an invoice for this..
