Did you try to check your supplier's location: Supplier > Sales & Purchases > Supplier Location

If it is empty, set to "Partner Locations / Suppliers".

Since you are trying to UPDATE a record, the error is telling you there is a field of type location_id that is mandatory and is not set. The field is shop_id.

There is no Shop defined for you to sell products from, or it isn't getting set when you create an RFQ.

To set one:

1) Make sure Manage multiple shops is checked under Settings --> Configuration --> Sales in the Quotations and Sales Orders section.

2) Refresh the User Interface in the web client by refreshing the page in your browse, or clicking in the bottom half of the company logo in the top left corner of the page.

3) Make sure there is a shop set for your company under Sales --> Configuration --> Shop

The shop dropdown is now added to the RFQ and Sales Order forms, so you can make sure one is selected before confirming,

By the way, this problem indicates an incorrect configuration somewhere during the setup of your database.

Hi Ray. Thanks for your answer. Settings -> Configuration -> Sales -> Quotations and Sales Orders -> Manage multiple shops was already set. Sales --> Configuration --> Shop already has a shop defined with its warehouse. Now, in the RFQ there is no shop dropdown. There is a warehouse one, which points to the one shown in the shop configuration. I also tried to create a purchase order directly from Purchases -> Purchase Orders -> Create but I cannot do it: it forces me to create a RFQ. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks again!

I posted assuming you mean a Sales Quotation. For a Purchase Quotation, do you have a value in the DESTINATION field on the INCOMING SHIPMENTS AND INVOICES tab?

Sorry, I thought RFQ were only for purchases. Yes, in the Incomming shipments and invoices tab of the RQF the destination is: Physical Locations / Ambitious Plumbing Enterprises / Stock I am trying to follow the tutorial (a nightmare so far, mainly due to multiple omissions), so I assume there might be a configuration problem somewhere, but I can't find it...

The error indicates that "Destination" does not have a value. If you have a value there I'm not sure what is going on.

Thanks for your time. I am totally clueless about what's going on. Unfortunately OpenERP is not giving me a good first impression...

Try one of the builds on runbot.openerp.com - you can test out a database that is configured correctly.

Well, I am stuck with the tutorial until I solve this problem. Just in case, this is the stacktrace:
