This is my code i have written

in the purchase_order.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

        <record id="purchase_order_view_loadnumber" model="ir.ui.view">
            <field name="name">purchase order loadnumber</field>
            <field name="model">purchase.order</field>
            <field name="inherit_id" ref="purchase.purchase_order_form"/>
            <field name="arch" type="xml">
                <xpath expr="//field[@name='product_uom']" position="after">
                    <field name="loadnumber"/>



from openerp.osv import osv, fields

class inkoop_bestelling(osv.Model):

    _inherit ='purchase.order.line'

    _columns= {
        'loadnumber' : fields.char('Laadnummer'),

I've" been looking for hours and can't find what's wrong with it

Please use class inkoop_bestelling(osv.osv): instead of class inkoop_bestelling(osv.Model):

Also, The char field should have a size attribute

Hello Kris,

I see a problem here Why are you inheriting 'purchase.order.line' in your .py ? it should be purchase.order as you want to add 'loadnumber' to purchase order.
