time.strftime() as value for a search domain ?

on 11/27/14, 7:45 AM 1,053 views


I want to create a record in ir.model.data for a created period. The "code" of the period depends on the current year so i try this code :

<record model="ir.model.data" id="fiscalyear_test">
        <field name="name" eval="str(time.strftime('%Y'))" />        
        <field name="module">account</field>
        <field name="model">account.fiscalyear</field>
        <field name="res_id" model="account.fiscalyear" search="[('code', '=',str(time.strftime('%Y')))]"/>         

The search parameter seems not to accept this type of value. Could you help me please ?
