Sometimes the same customer or contact is under the same name- can a user merge the 2 or more together? I'm looking at OpenERP 7.
There is no way to yet merge two partners or contracts.
But we are working on such a feature in v7 to be released as a new module in a few days as we need it for our own database.
Here is a branch where we putted the backported module provided by OpenERP: We also patched it to work with data from migrated database (as it was failing on some garbage table) https://code.launchpad.net/~camptocamp/partner-contact-management/partner-merge
