Is there a simple way to Erase or clear all accounting data from openerp?


Wed like to start using it fresh, but keeping our chart of accounts, products, partners etc.

With the integrated export tool, no?

You can do it by listing and selecting records (accounts, products, partners) you want to export (in view list) and click on the "Export" link in the right column.

Great! Thanks. Do you have a link that shows how to export those things in v6.1?

In short, no.  Accounting information is very intertwined with invoices and payments, which are associated with orders and shipments.  There are a lot of loose ends that need to be cleaned up.

What might be easier is to export the existing chart of accounts, products, partners, and so on.  Then, in a separate database, import them using the built-in import system.  The end result is the same, a clean database with data and no transactions, but it's less complicated than manually scrubbing then postgresql database without accidentally deleting too much information.
