I think you are getting an error like string object have not attribute "name". Because 


print "val^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^6",my_id

In this code you have assign va_partner with deg_obj.partner_id.name. So, va_partner having string value. Now you are using this variable va_partner into context.update with 'default_partner_id':va_partner.name. Here va_partner having only string, It is not borwse object. So, you can not use name with it.

I think you need to make your code like below.



I hope you will resolve your issue.

Thanks emipro for your Answers..... Its very helpful........

Improve your code.

            va_partner=deg_obj.partner_id and deg_obj.partner_id.id or False,  #as partner_id is many2one field.

And context.update({'default_partner_id': va_partner})

Hope this  will help you.

Thanks mansi for answers....
