Open Office can download and open the file. The file could be edited and uploaded but changes do not stick. This only happens to the existing report invoice/invoice. How do I edit the file?

You have to make know the system that there is a modified template and that it should use this one instead of the old one. Go to Settings --> Configuration --> Actions --> Reports (or similar) and search for account.invoice. Open this report action template and modify it by removing the flag for 'reload from attachment' and store template. Now, your modified report layout should be used.

Yup I figured that out after messing around with it. Both answers are correct, so I picked the earlier one. Thanks a bunch!

If you print any report and then openerp make an entry of that report in ir.attechment and if you print that report again then it will return same report.

So just go in Setting > Technical > Low Level Object > Attachments and delete entries related to your reports. And then print reports.


you can print that report from any newly created record
