How do I do it using python?

Hi Matt. Firstly don't forget to vote on my previous message. If you want to do it using python, you must learn how develop an openerp module using python (many tutorials on the web) . For that, i recommend you to read the documentation for openerp developer. If you don't have this possibility, call a openerp developer who can do it for you Best regards.

Hi Matt.
If you want to add a text input in your module menu, you have two ways : a soft way and a hard way.

In the soft way, you use openerp developper mode to add the text input : follow this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLf6lwJkVpk

In the hard way, you use code your text input field in your module with python and xml.
Best regards
