Hello everyone!

A do you think the following problem is caused by trying to import a CSV file?

'2012-12-31 23:59:59' seems not valid for the field 'Date' in row 2 date
Use the format '2012-12-31 23:59:59'

Worse, I edited the file to test and replacement date that is within him, it shows the same error warning and continues the error.

What can it be?

Thank You

Hi Diogenes

I believe your problem is that you are trying to import date + time in a date field.
A date field only takes dates (so 2012-12-31 in your example) and does not take time (23:59:59).
You'll either need to change your date field to a datetime field or remove the time from your formatting.

From the official Odoo docs:


A date.


fields.date('Field Name' [, Optional Parameters]),


Allows to store a date and the time of day in the same field.


fields.datetime('Field Name' [, Optional Parameters]),
