Hoe Charging by time work?

I still don't have this charging feature working. I noticed that the Call History table reference the field ChargeID.
When I manually try to enter a value in this field an error occured:
<conflict with COLUMN FOREIGN KEY constraint "FK__CallHisto__Charg__471C9436" The conflict occured in table Charges column ChargesID>
The table Charges is EMPTY!
I think that I correctly setup the USER:
- Dialup Group
- PPP type
- asigned 1$/hr 2$/hr Rate to PPP
First I run Charges and after this make Invoice type Invoice.
The answer: No new Invoices of this type...
Any version of Emerald from .75 till 1.9.

Maybe an answer now ...?

Thank you in advance,

First, you should upgrade to atleast 2.1.9. Then you need to run the
charges button
from the batch tab, BEFORE creating the renewals.

Which should be correct, unless you have CC pay metyhod accounts.

Thats most likely because you didn't run the charge first.
