Within a database when adding a custom field to a form following the book Working with OpenERP. Chapter 10 Customizing OpenERP for Your Business. There is no reaction when pressing the update button. The databasefield is created.

With an another database this functionality works as described. 

What can be the reason that the button is not working and where could there be some logs?


I have found the location of the logs which is defined by the file /etc/openerp/openerpserver.conf file. Standard location is = /var/log/openerp/openerp-server.log. I do not see any logs and there is no post made so the button is doing nothing, but I can use these logs for solving other problems.
