I need to display the creation date for customers that were created in tree view.

How can I achieve this?

Is there any ORM method to get creation date of records and store it in a variable.

You must add the field to the model. Although a database field already exists, this is not visible to the model until you define it:

class res_partner(osv.osv):

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


You need to inherit/create the tree view and put a new field like,

<field name="create_date"/>

So we cant use the create_date available in table(when viewed from PgAdmin)?

My need is to show the database record created date i.e when available if clicked on View Log at DEBUG mode

This method is how you use that field. The field only exists at the PostgreSQL level, and it not available as a standard field on the res.partner model. Adding it as explained above gives you that ability. The field on the model will show the value of the field that exists in PostgreSQL.
