Bug Description

After upgrading my database from OpenERP 6.1 to 7, I needed to install an additional accounting module localization. I selected the Romanian Accounting Charts module, installed it. After the module installation is finished, a form opens, that requires me to introduce the accounting options: VAT type and quantity, the company it applies to, and so on.
But the problem is that while opening the form and trying to select the company for which the accounting chart is to be used, I get the following error:

AttributeError: 'wizard.multi.charts.accounts' object has no attribute 'onchange_company_id'

The field for the company is empty, and everytime I try to switch it, I am getting the error above.

I've checked the views of the upgraded database and a demo OpenERP7 database. Here they are:
The Demo OpenERP 7 piece of the view, regarding companies:
 <field name="company_id" widget="selection"/>
The upgraded database piece of the view for the companies:
<field name="company_id" widget="selection" on_change="onchange_company_id(company_id)" />

I've tried deleting the part "on_change="onchange_company_id(company_id)"" from the view from the upgraded database, but in the end only the error disappears, and I cannot select my company and I get an integrity error, if I click on the "Apply" button.

I've tried to add another company in the settings, and it is shown in the "Accounting Options" frame, while the upgraded one does not show.

Tell me please, how can I further check what is wrong with the companies from the upgraded database?

Thank you very much

The 7.0 view is correct. In 7.0, the wizard model has this method but in 6.1 it does not. It appears therefore that you are running your migrated 7.0 database on a (partially?) 6.1 version of OpenERP. I would call the global /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons path suspect in this matter.

The wizard.multi.charts.accounts object is stored in the file /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openerp/addons/account/, and it doesn't have the onchange_company_id, nor it doesn't inherit it from any other method, from what I've seen. Please correct me if I'm wrong, I'm only beggining to work seriously with OpenERP

Also, I was able to select my company in the accounting options form by changing its default currency from Euro to the local currency.
Thank you very much for your help.

You are right. This method has been removed from 7.0 here: That totally violates the stable policy of OpenERP BTW.

Anyway, the solution is clear now: you should simply repeat the --update all on your 7.0 production instance. I can recommend it after every database upgrade using this project, but I'm guessing I have not documented it because I'm too stuck in my routine to even distinguish it as a part of the whole process.
