Convert rml to sxw?

Is there a way to convert the rml of a report back into the sxw format?

I have some sort of mismatch between my printed invoice format and what I get when I use the base_report_designer addon to modify the report in LibreOffice.

I think this is not possible.

Although I wasn't able to convert the rml to the sxw file I did come up with a solution to my problem.

I was able to export the invoice report and save the report_rml_content into a text file. From there I was able to sift through that file to find the various report fields [[ .. ]] and used those parts to rebuild the content of the report from the default invoice report in LibreOffice.

As a bonus I was able to review the default report and add the tax summary that was missing from my custom report. I now also regularly save the document onto my local file system from within LibreOffice.
