Dear all,

I would like to backup all my customers from odoo but just customers (name, company, tags, phone, mobile, street, etc..).

I tried to use the export tool but I don't get the company field nor creation_date, etc.. 

I think I will use postgres from the command line to do this task table by table, but before I would like to ask if you don't know any tool better than export from odoo to do something like this..

Thank you and regards!

It is strange that you didn't get the company field. When I go and use the csv export I see all the fields, including company and "Created on". If there are any fields that you can't see, changing the export type to "import-compatible export" should fix your problem. Make sure that you are exporting from a view of the customers, and not some other view (ie. your in the products view).

You definitely shouldn't have to use PostgreSQL and do a bunch of joins to get your data. Try going to customers, selecting all and going to export again.

"Export all data" worked for me, there is also the parent which points the company.. Thank you Michael!
