I have many contacts who work in several companies with different job position.

How can I link a person with several companies? Can I use multi-company for that(Personally I work with a single company system)?

In this case, a contact can't be a CEO of several companies?(this is the main problem of my company)

Is this contacts are user of system (like admin) or just a contact like in customer ???

they are customers. some have the same email address in several companies but a few of them have different address.

If they are customer(not User) then first thing multi-company will not help. In V6.1 version object called res.partner.address help to link multiple address to customer But in V7 res.partner.address removed. So you can't link multiple address with customer. But you can link multiple contact with customer company if Is Company is True

Hi Denis,

If I am not getting your wrong than the I would like to suggest something.

If you go to contract in OpenERP you will find customer (Here you can select Customer/Contact) and Company. So you can link person belongs to two company here by selecting respected company.

Regards, Mustufa Rangwala.

Did you said "contract" or "contact" ? In V7 I didn't find contract menu and If you said "contact" I don't understand where Is the option to "link person belongs to two company here by selecting respected company."

I say Contract (Sales/Sales/Contracts). You need to enable settings for "Contracts Management" under Settings/Sales to see that menu.
