I'm a newbie in OpenERP. What I would like to have is that whenever I search a product, say product x, apart form the usual options it gives, it also drills down a listing of suppliers of product x and their corresponding prices. This will easily help me to choose the best price when placing an order for product x. Additionally, I would like to have a hyperlink that can make me process the order right form the option of the best price that I have picked. Please help.

The Produts list stores the products your company buys and sells, and is ment to hold information on them such as reference selling or cost prices.

What you describe is something different - is a supplier catalog browser, permanently updated. This would require a module development and also a strategy to automatically import data catalog data from your suppliers.

Thanks for the information Daniel. Since I'm not that good in OpenERP, perhaps you can suggest to me someone that can do the module development. At the moment, I use a manual method where before I buy a product, I have to go to previous orders from suppliers and compare the prices manually. Help.
