1. Install https://apps.openerp.com/apps/modules/8.0/base_location/

2. Load in a City, State, Zip data file.  I use the US Census files because they are free and updated every year.


You will have to manipulate this file in Excel to pull out the information.  A format like this will go straight into Odoo:

00501,00501,Holtsville,NY,United States
01001,01001,Agawam,MA,United States
01002,01002,Amherst,MA,United States
01003,01003,Amherst,MA,United States
01004,01004,Amherst,MA,United States
01005,01005,Barre,MA,United States
01007,01007,Belchertown,MA,United States
