How to import invoice into OpenERP 7 (with csv from OpenERP V5)

I'm currently migrating datas from my old OpenERP V5 to a new fresh install of OpenERP V7. I'm exporting CSV data from V5 and importing to V7. Working fine for partners, products, orders, except invoices. It seems not possible to import new invoices. It works only when exporting and importing already existing invoices. It seems there's no "number" field for import.

This file work (invoice with external ID "__export__.account_invoice_1" allready existing) :

id,payment_term/id,date_due,date_invoice,name,currency_id/id,origin,note1,period_id,comment,invoice_line/product_id/id,invoice_line/name,invoice_line/origin,invoice_line/price_unit,invoice_line/quantity,invoice_line/discount,invoice_line/sequence,invoice_line/invoice_line_tax_id,supplier_invoice_number,partner_id/id,note2,company_id/id,user_id/id __export__.account_invoice_1,__export__.account_payment_term_7,2013-12-30,2013-12-30,,base.EUR,,,12/2013,,__export__.product_product_75,My product A,,631.66,1.0,,,19.6,,__export__.res_partner_1055,,base.main_company,base.user_root ,,,,,,,,,,__export__.product_product_75,My product A,,347.59,1.0,,,19.6,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,__export__.product_product_52,My product B,,45.0,1.0,,,19.6,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,__export__.product_product_4,My product C,,,1.0,,,19.6,,,,,

If I change id field from "__export__.account_invoice_1" to "__export__.account_invoice_2" (wich doesn't exists) in the csv file, it drive me to "'NoneType' object has no attribute 'group'" error.

Is there another way to import invoices ? Is there a way to bulk create invoices in OpenERP V7 ?

I always import invoices with Python scripts that update the OpenERP database with xmlrpc. You can find further information here:


Thank you so much. I will try this. It will be more difficult than I think in first time. I will do a php script using this class https://github.com/tejastank/openerp-php-connector
