Integrity Error importing a CSV file

on 7/4/13, 7:56 AM 1,718 views



  • Openerp 7.0
  • Ubuntu 12.04 x64
  • Postgresql 9.1


I have a CSV file like this :

"company1 name"
"company2 name"

So there's only one column.

When I try to import this in openerp web client, via the import menu, this take infinite time, either to validate or import...

After, when I've stopped the process, I've checked the log file, here's a sample (where the error appears):

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/opt/openerp/server/openerp/sql_db.py", line 226, in execute
    res = self._obj.execute(query, params)
IntegrityError: duplicate key value violates unique constraint "res_company_name_uniq"
DETAIL:  Key (name)=(company1 name) already exists.

I've also check with pgadmin3 ths database, and there's only one line: my own company (who was here before all this mess).

Someone can explain me why an Integrity Error is raised ?
