Trying to move data from one db to another vis CSV import

My csv has...

id 1 (name)  "A company"

id 2 (name) "Fred"  (parent_id) "id 1

Can I get openerp to associate  (parent_id) "id 1 with "id1" during an import

Yes ish!

I solved this by exporting the data to a csv, replacing id references with actual values


eg

sales_order.parter_id = 322,  - export this to csv you get the id 322 from res_partner, which openerp cannot import/match to partner

Using this SQL

copy
(SELECT so.id, rp.name FROM sale_order so
INNER JOIN res_partner rp ON so.partner_id = rp.id)
TO '/tmp/salesorder.csv' delimiter ',' csv header;


322 is replaced with the name from res_partner, which is easy to import

To import the external id of a related company, use:

parent_id/id

To import the database id of a related company, use:

parent_id/.id
