Several records with the same name

Hi!, I am new in Odoo and have a little issue; I hope you can help me with this little problem :)

When I capture a product, I can capture the same record several times. Finally when I want to sale, buy or make or adjust of inventory the same product appears two or more times. 

How can I avoid to have more than one duplicate product by mistake?

Thanks all of you

Best regards!

The only way is to avoid such mistakes. Or to write a module which identifies duplicates, but that's not that easy because the product name is a translatable field, so you would have to check for duplicates in each language.

If the mistake already happened, you might give this module a try: https://apps.openerp.com/apps/modules/8.0/product_do_merge/
