I just exported some messages.

Every one had either the HTML tag <P> or <DIV> starting the field, with a corresponding </P> and </DIV> as the last value in the field.

Do yours? Perhaps you can post a sample of what you are importing?



I was able to import the above CSV file of messages into build 26161 of v7 at http://7-0-26161.runbot.openerp.com/

You should try the same thing in the current version (accessed from http://runbot.openerp.com ). If it works, the problem is with your CSV. If it doesn't work, the problem is not with OpenERP.

Internet Explorer is not as reliable for importing as Chrome or Firefox - that could also be worth trying.

Hello, thanks, but all fields 'contents' has the tags, and also can't import. I decide my problem with direct import in database table. But if I can do this with standard import, is much easier.

Or export lead ids and create new csv filled by resource id for messages model. Then able to import comments in messages model.
