I am trying to import a list of products and also the associated supplier for the product with there product refrence. I have got the product importing fine but I am struggling finding what fields to use for the supplier name and there reference. Can this all be imprted on one CSV file ?

Yes you can import suppliers.

First create one supplier form using your Odoo instance. Once all needed fiels are setup and verified, then export this supplier data onto a csv file, with all mandatory field plus others you may need.

This file will show you the column names to reuse for the import of all other suppliers.


Thanks guys sorted it using the following Name,Internal Reference,Products / Products / Public Category,Can be Purchased,Can be Sold,Sale Price,Cost Price,Product Type,Products / Supplier /Supplier / External ID,Products / Supplier /Supplier Product Code,Products / Supplier /Supplier Product Name,sale_delay

But where the option "import-export" is?

Need the same for products...

when viewing a product (or any other object) list, tick the small box on the left side of the product name; this will open a new sub menu on the top of the list; there you will find an import or export button.
