I want to remove "required" option to name field on client form. I mean, I want to modify this option from data base, but open erp does not let me. How can I do this?



There is a good reason then Name field is required. It is used along the system in many places as a parameter that needs to be copied or accessed, if you had no value then it would break a lot of modules.

What you want to do seems like using OpenERP as a framework, to do that just install it and do not install any modules on top of it.

Would you mind telling us why you would like to remove a required form from a field?

Hi, because i have a very big data base to import in to OpenERP, it has some empty name fields, and only for testing and before clean prepare it, I would like to remove that option.
