Bug trying to remove a table cell using removeParentNode

on 4/3/13, 11:33 AM 3,960 views

I use OpenOffice Writer 3.4.1 to design my own quotation/order report. From there, I generate the rml file and send to server as per the procedure. I have a test installation running on windows and a production installation running on Ubuntu.

For the sake of testing, I have created a small table with 5 cells. In the middle one I have added the formula:

[[ removeParentNode('para') ]]

When I generate the pdf file from OpenERP, it works fine and the cell is empty.

If I change the formula in order to suppress the cell:

[[ removeParentNode('td') ]]

I get an error message on the production server only:

type 'exceptions.AssertionError'>, AssertionError(), <traceback object at 0x7ff5750bff38

But I don't get the error message on the windows installation.

I have restarted the openerp server but it hasn't changed anything. I know I am using the latest version of my rml file as I can see the various testing phases. I have sent the report to both servers.

Here is the what the log says specifically for this problem:

So if anyone has an idea out there, it will be most welcome!

Had the same problem, because there might be a function returning bool value (true and false). OpenERP can return TRUE but cannot return FALSE. Instead, it returns nothing causing error.

Solved problem by returning strings 'yes' and 'no'.

For example: [[ (is_girl() == 'yes' or removeParentNode('tr') ]]
