I have created several analytic accounts and the all have the same parent. When i go to Reporting > Accounting > Analytic Entries Analysis, I see only analytic data from my analytic accounts. But how can i see the totals on the parent analytic account?

Thanks for the help.

Good question!

I have a similar situation. One parent, 3 child accounts with several sub accounts. I want to see in the first case the totals on parent, and after the totals on child accounts. Any idea? Thanks!

Here is a workaround. At least for me :). Hope it helps others. I made a custom module which adds the parent_id field from analytic account to the analytic entries report.


import account_analytic_entries_report


    'name': 'Accana report Parent',
    'version': '1.1',
    'description': '''
    * Add *parent_id* to the model, sql query and tree view
    'depends': ['base', 'account'],
    'init_xml': [],
    'update_xml':  ['account_analytic_entries_report_view.xml'],
    'demo_xml': [],
    'test': [],
    'installable': True,
    'auto_install': True,
    'active': False,
    'certificate': '',


from openerp import tools
from openerp.osv import fields,osv

class analytic_entries_report(osv.osv):
    _inherit = 'analytic.entries.report'

    _columns = {
        'parent_id': fields.many2one('account.analytic.account', 'ParentAcc', required=False),      

    def init(self, cr):
        tools.drop_view_if_exists(cr, 'analytic_entries_report')
            create or replace view analytic_entries_report as (
                     min(a.id) as id,
                     count(distinct a.id) as nbr,
                     a.date as date,
                     to_char(a.date, 'YYYY') as year,
                     to_char(a.date, 'MM') as month,
                     to_char(a.date, 'YYYY-MM-DD') as day,
                     a.user_id as user_id,
                     a.name as name,
                     analytic.partner_id as partner_id,
                     analytic.parent_id as parent_id,

                     a.move_id as move_id,
                     a.product_id as product_id,
                     a.product_uom_id as product_uom_id,
                     sum(a.amount) as amount,
