Our purchase order spans a number of pages. We have customized the report format using the Openoffice report plugin. However, now we find that the PO no. is printed only on the 1st page (as it is part of the report content and not the header). We need the PO number to appear on all pages.
The header and footer are configured in the Company settings so there seems to be no option there to provide any field for the particular document being printed.
Is there any way to ensure a field in the rml file generated from Openoffice comes on all the pages of the report?
Am answering my own question. In Odoo 8 I added o.name to the standard report footer.
To do this, go to Settings->User Interface->Views and edit the View with the ID : report.external_layout_footer
Here add something like the following inside the <div class="footer"> tag:
<t t-if="o.name"> <span style="font-size:8pt;" t-field="o.name"/> </t>
Now whatever document (PO, Invoice, etc.) is printed, its 'name' field (normally containing the PO number/ invoice number) gets printed in the footer on all pages. Simple solution.
I think that with OpenOffice this is not possible. If you are directly changing the RML-Report you can try the following option:
- Uncheck the flag
Add RML Headerfor the report in menu Settings/Actions/Reports for the desired report. Then copy the company header into the RML file of the report and add the required field.
The problem here is that you somehow have to put the
repeatIn(objects,'o') statement before the header. Do not know whether this is possible.
