Odoo8 - Building a module using official documentation - inherit - add instructor boolean field - Field `instructor` does not exist
Hello dear community,
i am trying to build a module in Odoo 8 following the offifial documentation of odoo.com.
Now I came to my recent error  (Field `instructor` does not exist). This error occured after the implementation of the exercise of chapter "View Inheritance". My __init__.py , __openerp__.py and the relevant partner.py and partner.xml are copy and pasted from the doc. Nevertheless I post them into this topic as , ,  and . The error dissapears if "instructor" is replaced by "name" in partner.xml or if the code is deleted . It semms for me that 'inherit' dosen't work properly because the field 'name' is propably in the form that should be extended and using it doesn't produce the error.
Things I've tried:
- building the module from scratch by using the given code, no effect
thank you very much in advance

Odoo, like any Python based program, reads the source code and compiles it at runtime.
Did you restart the server before updating your module as you built it? Odoo won't see any changes to Python files between reboots. And, you must UPDATE the module each time your Python code affects field definitions, and every time you make XML changes. It is safest to ALWAYS update your module each time you make ANY changes to it.
