Custom Report Questions

I read the documentation and am trying to understand this: "To define a new analysis of the system's data, you should install the module base_report_creator. You can do so by using the Reconfigure wizard and installing Advanced Reporting."

These may sound like stupid questions, but here goes:

  1. Is the base_report_creator part of OpenOffice?
  2. Where is the "Reconfigure wizard"?

Hello Jim,

  • Go to Configuration -> Installed modules
  • click on "Installed" in the search form (upper right corner) to remove filter so you can see all modules
  • Type 'report' in search form to see only some modules
  • Then install base_report_designer
  • Once installed, a screen will propose you to download openerp_report_designer.zip this is the OO plugin
  • Install the plugin in OO and start to create your report.

Best regards

Thanks for the reply. That was actually the first thing I did. And the only thing that shows up is "Invoice Analysis per Company". When I view all modules in list view, there are only 6 modules listed as not installed, and base_report_designer is not one of them... thus my confusion as to where it is...

Have you tried to search for 'report' in search form ? You should see only modules that contain 'report' in their name

Oh, I see

You did not go to Installed Modules. You clicked on "Applications"

Please try again, go to Configuration -> Installed Modules

if you using windows go to C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenERP 7.0\Server\server\openerp\addons and look for base_report_designer. If you found it, just update your module to be listed in modules. If not found you need to download it.

Don't worry mate, 1) download from here, openerp.com/apps/base_report_designer ( add http://www. in front) 2) unzip and copy that folder in C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenERP 7.0\Server\server\openerp\addons and refresh your openerp browser 3) search in modules 'openoffice report designer' 4)click install and its done for openerp. 5) and for openoffice plugin, go in /addons/base_report_designer/plugin/openerp_report_designer/ and read 'readme' for installing on openoffice. Hope it helps, TC
