Hello Michela,

this module hasn't be migrated to OpenERP v7 yet. You should take (or ask some developer to do it) that branch
And adapt it for OpenERP 7.0
At Akretion we may end up doing it, but without any time-frame warranty, most likely within a month or two.

Thanks Raphaël Valyi -, that solved my question.

Hello Michela,

I actually worked a bit on this because for v7 I want to see some convergence between how we model varianted products and configurable products on OpenERP. So I actually made a fairly usable beta of the product_variant_multi module.
See the related merge proposal and branch:
The merge isn't done yet cause it's not 100% clean yet as explained in the comments. You may still beta test the associated branch however.

Hope this helps.
