dear Wizardz,

 your question is not clear, but if i understand you can get the data by call the browse method that receive id or list of ids you can got by using search method.

then when you browse the record or records you can get any value of any fields of that object by using dotted notation.

I hope I helped you.

firstly you can make object if you need to get data from other module

model_obj= self.pool.get('your model')

secondly if you know the id you can directly call browse record:

record= model_obj.browse(cr, uid, your id, context=context)

then record. any field.

if you can not know the id you can make search :

rec_ids= model_obj.search(cr, uid, [('your field','comparison',value)], context=context)

this mean [('your field','comparison',value)] your domain

for record in model_obj.browse(cr, uid, rec_ids, context=contect)

record. any fields

I hope i helped you...
