If you mean the Decimal Accuracy in settings, then you can change it with get these records ids from src code (XML) of Odoo then change the value

For anyone else reading, i've managed to change decimal precision on QTY fields from one decimal place (ie. 0.0) to no decimal places (ie. 0) using the following expression in python:

' % .f ' %product.packaging_ids.qty

This works specifically for printing product packaging quantity (ie. logistic units) on product catalog reports, however ' % .f ' % in particular should work in other cases as well where the value of the field is actually an integer.

Your solution is NOT working in warehouse>Products>Procurement>Supplier

The minimal qty will show 1,00 and can not be changed by changing those parameters



I need a module, because I'm looking automatically customization.

You don't need a custom module for it. You have it by default in Odoo For language related reports printing Go to Settings > Translations > Languages

Other decimal settings you've got in Settings > Configuration > Warehouse - Decimal precision on weight

For other units of measure you can set it up in:

Sales > Configuration > Units of Measure - Rounding Precision
