@Farsin - Try to look at name_get for "product" field under sale order line in sale order screen, you will find that it has code and name of the product together in it.

Hello Farsin,

OpenERP uses "name_get" method to show up the values under many2one field, so you can override the "name_get" method to change the default behaviour of bringing up the "name" field from a model. You can bring up your required field from the model to show up under many2one field. 



And I also need the original name field in another place???? What i do??

@Farsin, please explain what do you mean by "original name field in another place"?
