what i want to do is add a column to product.product table so i create a new object inheriting from product.product , and i also create a new view inheriting from product.product_normal_form_view but the field i have added to product.product not showing in the form view. i can see the itemid field in product_product table. it is so strange , anyone can help me?? many thanks.

here is the code my_product.py

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
from openerp.osv import fields, osv
from datetime import datetime 

class ebayerp_product(osv.osv):
    _name = 'product.product'
    _inherit = "product.product"
    _columns = {
        'itemid' : fields.char('eBay ItemID', size=32, readonly=True, invisible=False),


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
        <record id="product_normal_form_view" model="ir.ui.view">
            <field name="name">product.normal.form.inherit1</field>
            <field name="model">product.product</field>
            <field name="type">form</field>
            <field name="priority" eval="1"/>
            <field name="inherit_id" ref="product.product_normal_form_view"/>
            <field name="arch" type="xml">
                 <sheet position="inside">

                    <div name="ean">
                        <field name="itemid"/>

Hi you define wrong field name in your view

 <field name="ebayitemid"/>

replace it with

 <field name="itemid"/>

and plz be remember you should use same whither same class name (product_product) or place a new field in class label _table=product_product other wise this field will not be added in the product table

Thanks Sandeep
