Howto import Sales Orders without referenced products?

on 5/21/16, 3:13 PM 766 views

I'm trying to import sales orders from an OpenERP7 system into a new Odoo9 without valid references to products.

To achieve that I imported all customers successfully, however, for many reasons I do not want to import the old products.

Thus, here is the burning question:

How can I import the order lines without a valid reference to products?
Is there a way to import order lines that are just "text" entries?

This is definitely an alternative, however, I wonder if this is the way the system was designed to operate?

If it is, so be it. I just want to avoid cluttering the DB with 'unwanted' products that we will never be able to delete later as they will have transactions associated to them.

What about creating a "shadow product" which could replace your old products?
