Follow these steps:

  1. You need to have the openERP Report Designer installed into your current database(module name:OpenOffice Report Designer - base_report_designer)

  2. Install the plugin provided by the module into LibreOffice/OpenOffice from Tools->Extension Manager, restart the office suit.

  3. A new menu should appear 'OpenERP Report Designer', Connect to the current database by clicking on 'Server Parameters'.

  4. After that you can create a new report or modify existing one.

  5. Click on 'Modify Existing Report' under 'OpenERP Report Designer' then choose the desired report.

  6. Make changes, then click on 'Convert Fields->Brackets' under 'OpenERP Report Designer', then click on 'Send to the server'.

Hope this helps..%

Hi!, How can I install the OpenOffice Report Designer. I'm using version 7 and when I try to install from OpenERP APP i get this: The base_report_designer module appears to be unavailable at the moment, please try again later.

It seems you are using openERP 7.0 on windows. I think you should wait for a while.%

Hello,i did that very well with OpenERP 6.1 in the past. Now with an online version of OpenERP, the layout does not change when i print my page from OpenERP. Changing colors for example have no impact. if I insert a bad variable, it 'crashes' when i try to print. When i click "Modify an existing report" again, i can see my changes in the download file. Anyone knows why it has no impact when printing the invoice ? Thanks!

You need to edit in the source file. file location is bin>addons>sale>report> sale_order.rml file you can edit it as you like. Before you edit it, you should copy that rml file.

Hi, I have installed the openerp v7 server, on my ubuntu linux machine under /opt/openerp/server folder, so the configuration file is located in "/opt/openerp/server/install/". If you are not using linux, you may search the file name on your computer with openerp-server.conf .

This is not an answer. It's another question. Please post it under the answer you're referring to.

I use openerp7 on win7 on same machine. I installed openerpreportdesigner on openoffice. The openerp menu appeared in the menus. I can not connect to the openerp server. The error mesage is: Group not found.

are you typing in the correct address eg the default is "localhost" but in my case its should be the server (or whatever yours is!)

Yes, i have tried it so as well. The server and the client are the same machine. I installed the base_report_designer into OpenOffice, it doesen't work at all. I installed openerp_report_designer, it asks the login data's , but does nothing.
