How can I write Data fast into OpenERP?

Hello, for me it's important to put a lot of data fast into OpenERP. For example a long list of Materials must be added in the BOM. Using the mouse everytime is very annoying. I'm dreaming of writing the BOM in something similar to a excel list or like in MS Access not in single fields. Just typing the product, pressing return typing the number of products needed, return and then the next product. And getting back to a product bevor just by using the arrow keys.

Is this possible to do in OpenERP?`

Thanks for your reply.

You can import all the data at once from CSV file using standard CSV import functionality or this handy module.

To fix this issue you need simply rename module from ea_import-master to ea_import, restart the server and update module list.

I don't want to import from Excel or csv, I just want to find an easy way to create my BOM very fast by just using the keyboard.
