Hello Sneha

Are you talking about purchase quotation generated after confirmation of sale order?

if it so,,here we go

go to sale module-> sale .py

def _prepare_order_line_procurement(self, cr, uid, order, line, move_id, date_planned, context=None):

// after confirming sale order, your orderline information dynamically passes for procurement.


now go to purchase module->purchase.py

def make_po(self, cr, uid, ids, context=None):

// this will make your purchase order quotation

No I meant the sales quotation that come under Sales/Sales/Quotation.I just dont want the Invoice address and the shipping address in the printout of the quotation generated.So how to change the design of the print of the quotation?

one more doubt.Is there any option to limit the number of characters in a text field as like that of char in openerp?I want to limit the terms & Conditions to 500 chars.

'note': fields.text('Notes',size=500)

Is it possible to edit the .py file for the above change to be done and upgrade the corresponding module to update the change or else I should make another custom field?
