Importing postgres data to odoo?

I have copied a table to a csv file from postgres.

The csv file contains this data

34,2016-06-08 13:56:31,0,1,0,0,t

34,2016-06-10 13:49:17,0,1,0,0,t

34,2016-06-11 13:45:53,0,1,0,0,t

34,2016-06-14 13:37:10,0,1,0,0,t

The last column is  Boolean value in postgres table the Boolean value is taken only as 't' or 'f'.

While I importing this csv file in odoo it shows this error in yellow color

"Unknown value 't' for boolean field 'state?', assuming 'yes' at row 655

Use '1' for yes and '0' for no"

It take all the values of 't' and 'f' as yes that is it takes all value as 't' while importing changes the state field(boolean) to 't' in postgres table.

So the odoo takes only 0 and 1 as boolean value while importing then how can I import the data of postgres in odoo.

Provide me some other solutions to import postgres boolean value into odoo.

On CSV file we only need to key in 0 or 1.

Notes: 0 = False; 1 = True  in PostgreSQL

So I want to change the boolean data to 0 and 1. There is no other way. I have more than 20000 records and it will be more in future it is difficult to change that much records. Is there so other way?

Why don't you just manipulate your .csv file accordingly?

how to manipulate large amount of csv files. Is there a way to change the field of the csv file?

There are numerous ways not related to Odoo to accomplish that. But you can also develop a new Odoo import csv module based on the existing one.
