Created 2 product records manually then exported them, results as follows:

seller_ids/id __export__.product_supplierinfo_8, __export__.product_supplierinfo_8 seller_ids/company_id/id
seller_ids/delay 105, 105 seller_ids/min_qty
seller_ids/sequence 1,1

seller_ids/name/id __export__.product_supplierinfo_333_8, __export__.product_supplierinfo_333_9


seller_ids/product_code prod code1, prod code2 seller_ids/product_name prod desc1, prod desc2

Now if add further products from the same supplier I replicate seller_ids/id and seller_ids/sequence but as supplierinfo record does not exist what value do I assign to seller_ids/name/id?

When I try to import input file validates OK but none new product's supplier information is created nor existing product's information updated.

Could anyone explain procedure for adding supplier info to a product as it is too much of a task to do manually?

Please fix the export bug and try again:


product_supplierinfo_333_8 is evidence of this bug. It should be product_supplierinfo_[A SINGLE NUMBER]

Thanks for your assistance. Assume I install bzr branch lp:~therp-nl/openobject-server/7.0-lp1194893-export_xmlid_wrong_table_name, yes?

Yes. Since it is a change to three lines in one file, I made a diff and use that to patch.

Have fixed bug as suggested export data now shows seller_ids/name/id as __export__.res_partner_333. However I still get the validate error on import file as seller_ids/id (product_supplierinfo_XX) for new seller info is unknown until that record created. I have tried leaving blank and also as manually entered supplier info increments by 1 I have tried incrementing the last id. Both fail. What is the correct way to add new supplier info via CSV import?

Did you try importing the suppliers first? OpenERP is unable to create supplier information for products if the suppliers don't first exist in the system - there is nothing to link to.

I did have suppliers set up first. Resolved problem in that I was leaving seller_ids/name/id (Supplier / Supplier / External ID) blank for new records whereas there should be no column at all. Incidentally I also deleted other _export fields bar Product Category and Supplier. I assume the other _export fields are needed for update to avoid insert of new records. Thanks for your help.
