When you edit the product, you can assign suppliers to the product and for each supplier, you can assign the name and code of the product at the supplier's. When you create the PO, you first choose your supplier and then in the line, you choose your product. The system will automatically replace the description with the supplier's description and code.

Good Luck

You should be able to supply this information on the product. I do not have a running OpenERP/Odoo by hand, but there should be a tab that allows you to configure how the product is represented on a sale/purchase order line. It might be a module to install.


If I create a PO i can  put the reference but by hand only ...... so why it is not  automatic ... that if  I put 4 different product i got 4 supplier reference code :D
