How can I start with reports?

on 1/29/15, 2:00 PM 498 views

Hello, I have Odoo 8 and I am starting to understand the reports, to develop my own reports. (The reports of Reporting tab).

Where is any tutorial? I see the tutorial of the v8 in https://www.odoo.com/documentation/8.0/ but it is very short. I need more detailed tutorials.

For example, I am seeing the addons/account/account_invoice_report.py and I don't know why the table of BD is named "ail"...


Probably documentation postgresql is the best tutorial for this. PS. ... ail ... short name account_invoice_line (postgresql - account_invoice_line AS ail) ... see ... FROM account_invoice_line ail ... method _from in account_invoice_report.py

It is called an alias. You can call it anything. If you don't provide it, the full table name is used.
