Google Spreadsheets data import module: any documentation?

on 2/8/13, 5:04 PM 5,232 views

Looking in http://v6apps.openerp.com/, I saw that the module "google_spreadsheet" was updated yesterday (2013/02/07)

I decided to give it a try -- but without success.

When accessing Settings >> Customization >> Google Spreadsheets >> Import Data from Spreadsheet I get this error . . .

Client Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons/web/common/http.py", line 180, in dispatch response["result"] = method(controller, self, **self.params)
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons/web/controllers/main.py", line 864, in action [('ir.ui.menu', menu_id)], False)
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons/web/controllers/main.py", line 679, in load_actions_from_ir_values for id, name, action in actions]
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons/web/controllers/main.py", line 692, in clean_action action['context'] = eval( action['context'], eval_ctx ) or {}
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
NameError: name 'active_id' is not defined

I presume this is a generic mis-configuration error, since I get the exact same response regardless of the configuration parameters I try; even if I configure nothing at all!

Is this module known to work? to NOT work?

Are there any explanations of how to set it up, or any examples available?

If someone here has managed to get it to work I'd appreciate some tips.


(I'm running 6.1)

Perhaps you should try to contact the author for support.

No answer on a Friday afternoon. Perhaps they will today.

I wonder if there is any response by now. If not how much longer to wait? If an author of a module doesn't respond on legitime questions in a specific period and also here are no responses, the community and OpenERP SA could think about to end the presentation of the module in the download website.

ton123, do you happen to know if the Google connectivity of OpenERP V7 makes that module obsolete in any case?

I just posted this, "Por su falta de respuesta OpenERP esta contemplando quitar sus modulos de su catalogo de modulos recomendados. Mira : http://help.openerp.com/question/562/google-spreadsheets-data-import-module-any-documentation/" on the "Contactenos" page at http://cubicerp.com/ Let's see if that shakes'm up a bit. ]:)

Try removing context, I see you can remove and use the module <field name="context">{'model_id':active_id}</field> Let me know if you could not manage to solve. I will send you the updated module.

This is good news, but I've quit using V6.1 altogether. Is it confirmed to work with V7.0?

Martin, v7 already has 'google_docs' out of the box!

@Martin I don't know. I spend hands on time on v7 at this moment because the Dutch localisation modules which I need are not available and not yet planned.

@Serpent Consulting Services - Ok, so I have played with the V7 ´google_docs´ module. See my remarks about it here -- http://help.openerp.com/question/10339/google-models-configuration/?answer=10381#post-id-10381

@Martin I don't know. I work with v6.1.1 .

I have configured the Google spreadsheet and pointed it to a template. But when I try to create a document from that template all I get is a copy of the template. It seems like I should have some kind of field in my spreadsheet to fetch from Odoo but I can't find anywhere how to do that.
