Hey, Can anyone please help me finding the solution for this.

      I've created a new menu "AssetMenu1" under "Projects" and created some customized fields in it. Now I want to map the existing "Assets" menu fields data(which is under "Accounting") to the newly created menu "AssetMenu1".

Please guide me.

Hi Jignesh, thanks for your answer.

   I inherited the account.asset.asset model. But, My requirement is that, whenever I create a record in pre-defined "Asset" menu, I should be able to access the same data in the fields into the customized menu "AssetMenu1" created by me.

Here is my code:

# assetproject.py

from openerp import fields,models

class asset_real(models.Model):




class asset_submenu(models.Model):


       name=fields.Many2one('account.asset.asset',String="Asset Name")


      gross_value=fields.Many2one('account.asset.asset',String="Gross Value")


Do you not access data from your custom model ?
