Dear all,

I have accidentally delete invoice report by using OpenERP Report Designer. Fortunately, I still have .sxw file.

Hi Tee Wu,

This is a limitation of report designer. Once you change the rml from report designer there is no way to get back to original one.

Either you can create a new database or create a script that reads the original rml and rewrites it to the database. The ir.actions.report.xml field report_rml_content_data needs to be updated with the binary data of your original rml.


Could you guide me a little more about which table needs to be rewrite? Thanks!!

You can download it from Launchpad Bazar.
