I everyone,

I am figuring something weird... When I import csv file in OpenERP I have this error message :

"Missing required value for the field 'Name' (name) at row ..."

I have this problem since several days. Usually it works very good.

Is this a bug?

When you import csv file you have to be sure that you are importing everything correctly.

That error happens when you are trying to import something related to another module. For example, if you try to import orders related to products that doesn't exist then the system is going to try to create that products, but on products the name is required so it's going to appear that error.

Thanks for your answer.

But I figure this out even when I export product list, make not any change and import same list again in OpenERP.
