Apparently, the process for importing Quantity on Hand for products has changed, and I can't find anything that describes the new method. Anyone know how to import current stock levels into Odoo 8? In version 7, you created an inventory count record, then imported all your product quantities using the reference field from the manually created count record. This doesn't seem to work in v8.

The validation and import shows as succesfull, but when I check it's empty! ... any clue?

It's finally solved,  simply replace


by column id, obtained exporting wharehouse list of products :


This is a sample of the succesfully imported data \http://bit.ly/odoocsv


Someone asked me to record a screencast showing the process, I hope it be clear enough :)

I'm having problems too. In the past, I have done this importing without no problem at v7, but I can't make the importing anyway at v8.

I'm ussing this fields to make the importation:

Company/External ID  - Inventory Reference - Inventories/Location/External ID - Inventories/Product - Inventories/Product UOM - Inventories/Checked Quantity

The result of importation is ok, but when I access for first time to this imported inventory, I see that all imported registries are erased.
