add field to custom module

on 3/8/13, 10:11 AM 2,319 views

I am new to OpenERP. i am on OpenERP 7.0. I need help in a custom module. I have developed a custom module with the help of Google search and its working fine. The module creates notes. The table 'Notebook' contain three fields (date, title, note). I want to inherit a field from employee table, so that i can relate notes to different employees. So i assume its a one to many relationship. Can someone guide me step by step, and upload the files like __ini__, __openerp__, py and xml view file. I have already reviewed the openerp documents but those are quite complicated for me.


Hi, I am new to OpenERP as well, and I am trying to store the name of a purchase order into a specific table/class. Actually I would prefer to store a link to that purchase order, so if the source's name change, I will see the change... Is kind of stuff that you were trying to do by "relate" ?

If you google openerp custom module there are many blogs out there with detailed examples.

There is not enough space in this little box to answer you question completely.

ya i know it, but unfortunatly i could not find one with detailed explanation. what if i give you my email would you send me the code? i dont think that it will be a code of more than 20 lines.

There are some examples in the official documentation. Check out the Example of module creation page.

The answers received so far shows the lack of commitment of the community towards providing support to new users of OpenERP. I have already explained that i am a new user of OpenERP, I have reviewed the official documentation but its natural that everything takes time. These forums are a way to share your experience with others so that the new people may learn it quickly by utilizing the experience of the community.
