Please note that there is no error actually.

You only need to restart the server once and upgrade the module shipping_api_ups.

Hope this helps.

The restart of your system will probably correct the error you're seeing there but what it will not correct is that shipping_api and shipping_api_ups has not been ported to the 6.1 code stream. NPG created this for clients running on the 6.0 code stream and have had interested parties requesting this get moved up but it has not occurred as of today.

Using the code released by SCS on 2012/12/04 for OpenERP 6.1 and this error still occurs after restarting the server and upgrading the shipping_api_ups module. Shouldn't be a huge surprise, since that merge proposal doesn't even include an update to shipping_api_ups.

At line 11 of sale_view.xml in the main shipping_api_ups module, it looks like a poorly formatted xpath expression. It's finding the first instance of a separator with the string "Notes", which is within the individual order lines popup menu. That's not where it's supposed to be, it should be in the main sales order record. Try changing this:

<xpath expr="//separator[@string='Notes']" position="before" >

to this:

<xpath expr="/form/notebook/page/separator[@string='Notes']" position="before" >

After saving that change, restart the server and upgrade the shipping_api_ups module to force a reload of the XML files (views), and that will fix the problem.

Can you help with this problem?
