Import to inventory by EAN13

on 3/18/13, 11:14 AM 3,435 views


I want to know if is possible to use EAN13 codes from a barcode scanner to insert lines in the inventory.

I have a text file with a list of EAN13 code and the quantity. I export an example to a stock.inventory.csv file for use as template for import but this file uses the product name or product internal code instead of the EAN13 to locate each item.

There is otherway of doing this? what I miss?


I don't know in OpenERP 7, but in 6.0, I've created a little script which browse lines of your csv file and create stock_move according to difference between current real stock quantity in database and in the warehouse, like when you change manualy the stock (by clicking on update quantity button on product form view)

Well, then I'll use a similar workaround. I can get the barcode scanner data in a csv spreadsheet and then cross reference the EAN13 codes with the csv exported from the warehouse to get the internal codes (I really have a libreoffice basic script for this). Thanks!!!

What about connecting your scanner directly on OpenERP ?

Openerp v6

There is a syleam module that already include a inventory scenario for your scanner.
