How do I use amount_to_text function in v7?

Hi everyone,

I've tried everything I know with the amount_to_text function in a webkit report but I'm simply getting nowhere. I've looked at the check writing module and duplicated it as much as I can but still no results. I'm using webkit instead of rml and I'm not sure if this makes a difference in v7 because the same code works fine in 6.1. Any help would be hugely appreciated

This is the code from the .py file:

import time
from report import report_sxw
from osv import osv     
from openerp.osv import osv,fields
from openerp.tools.translate import _
from openerp.tools.amount_to_text_en import amount_to_text

class tax_receipt(report_sxw.rml_parse):
    def __init__(self, cr, uid, name, context):
        super(tax_receipt, self).__init__(cr, uid, name, context=context)
            'time': time,
            'uid': uid,
            'amount_to_text': amount_to_text,


# vim:expandtab:smartindent:tabstop=4:softtabstop=4:shiftwidth=4:

The excerpt from the mako file looks like this:

<table width="95%" cellpadding="5px" cellpadding="5px">
      <tr style="text-align:left;border-bottom:1px solid;">
        <td width="10%">The sum of </td>
        <td width="80%" style="text-align:left;border-bottom:1px solid;">**${ amount_to_text(inv.amount) }**</td>

when I try to generate the report, I get:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenERP 7.0\Server\server\openerp\addons\report_webkit\webkit_report.py", line 266, in create_single_pdf

<td width="80%" style="text-align:left;border-bottom:1px solid;">${ amount_to_text(inv.amount,"Euro") }</td>
TypeError: 'Undefined' object is not callable

Thank you

Any suggestions on this please?
