Hi, I have a client who is moving from vtiger to openERP (hurrah!). What is the best way to move all the existing data (accounts / contacts) to openerp? I'm familiar with openerp database structure but not vtiger. I presume csv export / import will be easiest? or are there recipes for an ETL? Thanks

In my knowledge, there is no such tool, but yes ETL can surely help. https://wiki.vtiger.com/index.php/Webservices_tutorials helps you retrieve vTiger data and then you can write Python script or OpenERP module for import into OpenERP.

Hope this helps. Thanks.

Thanks Jay, will try it out

I think it will be easier for you to develop scripts in Python, it is very easy to import data to OpenERP using Python with XML-RPC or OERPLib

Are you interested in doing a vtiger->openERP migration job for me?
