This is because, you defined domain or attributes for one2many field inside the tree view


<page string="Purchase Request">

<field name="order_line"> ----------- (one2many field)

<tree string="Purchase Req Order Lines" editable="bottom">

<field name="part_name" attrs="{'readonly':[('state','not in',('draft',))]}"/>

<field name="price_unit" attrs="{'readonly':[('state','not in',('draft',))]}"/>

<field name="sub_total" attrs="{'readonly':[('state','not in',('draft',))]}" />




Correct :

<page string="Purchase Request">

<field name="order_line" attrs="{'readonly':[('state','not in',('draft',))]}"> ----------- (one2many field)

<tree string="Purchase Req Order Lines" editable="bottom">

<field name="part_name" />

<field name="price_unit"/>

<field name="sub_total" />




- state field is present only in main class. Hope this may solve your problem
