Hello , I need to import data from a csv file. But Odoo model towards which I import the data contains Many2one fields. What is the right way to import data into such fields?
If you are importing values into a 'many2one' field, that values must already be present in corresponding model.
Suppose, in our import, 'partner_id' is a many2one field. The value imported is say 'suhas' , it means suhas must be present in partner list . Otherwise import terminate with an error message.
You have to prepare separate csv files for 'partner' and import them before importing current csv.
Similar is the situation if the the field type is many2many'
default many2one field require name field ( or _name_rec) for csv import.
