I am trying to create an automated action upon creation of a Partner. The problem is that the create_date field is not accessible , the filed exists in the database but not in the model.

Can anyone helps?

You have to add the database field to the model as a read-only field.

For an example that adds the create_uid to the sale.order model so users can see who entered sales orders, see:

First of all inherit the 'res.partner' and add the fields

'create_date': fields.datetime('Creation Date' , readonly=True),

Then put this field in view...so that you can see or access the partner created date.
