you can use fields.binary. you can save your file in database.

in your file.py

 'data': fields.binary('File'),

in your file.xml:

<field name="data" />
<button name="import_file" string="Import" type="object"  class="oe_highlight" />

if you clik in button Import it call function import_file

in your function :

create a temp file for treatment content data.

 def import_file(self, cr, uid, ids, context=None):
    fileobj = TemporaryFile('w+')

    # your treatment

I need a button on my form that allows me to look at the client workstation, the file you want to upload to the server, and already once uploaded to launch the program evaluate the content of the file. After parsing the file's contents, if correct, shall be recorded in the custom tables, but never before.

yes retrieve contents of file to download to a temporary file then do tests on this file if correct save this object in your database else display a warning for example.

That is: in my custom program (my. py file), I introduce the sentence: 'data': fields.binary ('File') Along with the content of the file. Xml, this creates a button on the form. Is it right? Once this is when my role would create the temporary file, and then proceed to treatment. Is it right?

In your function you try to write data to a temporary file, but data is not defined in this function. How you get data?

How can we do this without storing the file in the database? I would like to store the file in filepath on server.

Storing field data to filestore (file store on folder data/filestore)

images= fields.Many2one(comodel_name="ir.attachment", string="Images")
