I use OpenERP 7 and my goal is to store document localy on the file system and to access them trough ftp.

I carefully read the following post : http: //help.openerp.com/question/529/where-are-document-attachments-stored/

So I installed all the required module, setted the ir_attachment.location and restarted the openerp-server. I also created the filestore folder on my openerp root folder install.

But still all attachment are saved in a binary form and not in url format.

The ftp module work well, I can connect and view folder tree. If I drop a document, let's say in a partner folder, the document is converted in binary format and appear in the attachment of the partner in the web interface of OpenERP. But if I Do the opposite (add an attachment trought the web interface of OpenERP and then connect trough the ftp and list the folder), I don't see my just added attachment. Is that a normal behavior of OpenERP.

Thanks in advance for your help

1.- In V7, documents are stored as binary always. You can see in its structure via FTP.

2.- It seems a bug the bahavior you are describing.


I write the bug or not???
