Hello All,

I have installed V7 and created my projects, customers and employees.. I have a lot of problems with my currently installed server so I decided to install newly fresh server ver7 and take my data to the newly installed server... I have created a backup from openerp web client and restored it to the newly server..

Now I try to review the tasks, i can't view tasks and I get the error MSG: "View error: Can't find field 'description_pad' in the following view parts composing the view of object model 'project.task': * project.task.form.pad Either you wrongly customized this view, or some modules bringing those views are not compatible with your current data model "

NOW I go to setting-> technical- >DataBase Structure -> Fields And I found all this pad options description_pad module_note_pad module_pad note_pad_url pad_key pad_server padding

When I try to delete description_pad I get an error MSG "Error

This column contains module data and cannot be removed! "

What Should I Do Now ... I don't want a PAD server.

You probably did a wrong installation. The error you get is because your initial database used some modules and your newly installed server do not have the those modules installed. (I guess you used another server?)

In order to download all required modules, I would suggest you to create a new database and install all the modules you had in your previous backup. This will download all required modules from OpenERP Apps automatically. Then, your restored database should work correctly (you may have to restart the server before) as all modules will be available.
