The easier way is to set the relation in the declaration of your field.

It should be as follows, in your module.py:

new_field = fields.Char(string='...', related="partner_id.partner_field_name")

thanks for the reply, but is there another way to make this from odoo ( developper mode ) without enter to the module .py because i'm using lunix and i dont know how and were to find such as files as you said ( hh and this is also another probleme ) thanks
