I used inherit to modify default headers and created two templates using different headers. But only one is displaying in each reports. Is there any way to use different headers and footers?

Hi Mohamed,

Yes you can and it is quite easy. When you look at a QWeb report in Odoo you will always see a call at the very top of the report to another template. For example for the sale report:

<template id="report_saleorder_document"> <t t-call="report.external_layout"> <!-- Lots of irrelevant code --> </t> </template>

This <t t-call="report.external_layout"> refers to the default report header in Odoo. When you look at that code you'll see this calls another two templates:

<template id="external_layout"> <!-- Multicompany --> <t t-if="not o and doc"> <t t-set="o" t-value="doc"/> </t> <t t-if="o and 'company_id' in o"> <t t-set="company" t-value="o.company_id"></t> </t> <t t-if="not o or not 'company_id' in o"> <t t-set="company" t-value="res_company"></t> </t> <t t-call="report.external_layout_header" /> <t t-raw="0" /> <t t-call="report.external_layout_footer" /> </template>

So if you create another template like the one above, which does a call to another (custom made) header & footer you can use them in your custom / other reports.
Something along the lines of:

<template id="external_layout_custom"> <!-- Multicompany --> <t t-if="not o and doc"> <t t-set="o" t-value="doc"/> </t> <t t-if="o and 'company_id' in o"> <t t-set="company" t-value="o.company_id"></t> </t> <t t-if="not o or not 'company_id' in o"> <t t-set="company" t-value="res_company"></t> </t> <t t-call="report.external_layout_header_custom" /> <t t-raw="0" /> <t t-call="report.external_layout_footer_custom" /> </template>

Don't forget to also create XML templates for external_layout_header_custom and external_layout_footer_custom too.

Thanks for the detailed answer. this is applicable in custom reports, right? Is this possible while inheriting a report? I used the inherit for the headers too.

No problem! Yes this is applicable in custom reports and also in already existing ones.
