Re: How to open database odoo 7 on odoo 8.0

Hi,

There are a number of incompatibilities on migrating from V7 to V8 to be 
expected.

What we generally do is go by Odoo Migration machine, where basically we 
take a dump of our database, pass it to Odoo for their migration 
machine, then Odoo comes back to us within 6 weeks with a report of 
exceptions.

In that report we will have a number of things that need to be fixed or 
we'll loose functionality, but the fixes may or may not need to be 
before migration. For instance, we had the case that we migrated from 
V6.1 to V8, and in the old Odoo there were Campaign and Channel fields 
on the CRM, which we use a lot, but on V8 that was not out of the box 
functionality. Still even though the fields were not showing on screen, 
they were still present on the database tables, hence we could go ahead 
with migration, and later on we invested some time in displaying the 
fields on screen.

So, in summary, contact Odoo about their migration services, it's not a 
difficult process.

Best of luck,
Nuria
