Hello I create a custom bpartner module with a custom field x_note2 extending also the view res.partner.form using an xml file

Now I would like to remove this custom module but I got an error:

File "/opt/odoo/openerp/addons/base/ir/ir_ui_view.py", line 360, in raise_view_error
    raise AttributeError(message)
AttributeError: Field `x_note2` does not exist

Error context:
View `res.partner.form`
[view_id: 126, xml_id: base.view_partner_form, model: res.partner, parent_id: n/a]

How can I clean the database ?

Best regards

the problem seems that res.partner.form view is searching for x_note2 on view, but doesn't exist on model. If you want to delete the custom, first i would try commenting on xml lines that overwrite the base.view_partner_form and update the module, and after updating (with no field on model neither view), uninstall the module.

If you prefer doing on database, you must go to ir_ui_view table and search for record that overwrite this view and delete it

Thank you very much
