I have searched through these faq pages bust cannot get a straight answer to my problem. I have contacts in one openerp 7 db. I want to export them so I can use them in another openerp db. I have enabled users to export via csv etc
So I select mesaging, contacts and I click on list view which allows me to select export under "more". I am now presented with 50 zillion fields to select. So I select all and "add" them. I select the Import compatible function ... I then export to a file.
If I now import this csv file I can not get it to validate. It imports 0.000%
SO: Must I go and select only certain fields? must we re-enter all our contacts? Any advice please.
It is confusing for a new user. the easiest way to get the customers into a new openerp system is use the "export" as you mentioned. Dont worry about the ID unless you want to import other data that links to the customer. Just select the fields you need (eg, name, street address etc) and then export. You should be able to import it into the new system.
Otherwise, export directly from the database - you have more control over the fields, but requires some knowledge of how the tables link together.
Give a shout if you need help - gotta support SA developers ;)
