OpenERP 7 Export Data most of fields export (many2one master table) shows database keys (IDs) instead of name. In openerp 7 how to export data value instead of data ids?...

When you export file change export type from drop down menu to "export all data" then you can select what data you want to export (note that if you e.g. want to export employee name in contract you have to click white arrow next to Employee field and select employee name).

If you use this export type you can't anymore import the same file back to your system.

Thanks for reply its working but in the first column always shows External ID value __export__.module_name_id100 is there any way to not show external ID column

I think that column comes always by default so I guess it can't be removed.

Look at the template of the Export it is in \web\static\src\xml\base.xml (for some reason OE has put all the templates into one file) on line 1729 you can find the options just change their order (I didn't test this but would assume that it works).
