On a windows system where the odoo 8.0 server resides I installed OpenOffice 4.1.1 and the OpenERP designer. After connecting to the OpenERP server (localhost, 8069, xml-rpc) and entering the connection parameters, I get the error "please install base_report_designer modul". Where do I get this module or what is the problem?

Best regards, Paolo

You need to install (from configuration module in the "extra section") ) the corresponding module 

This module is used along with OpenERP OpenOffice Plugin.

This module adds wizards to Import/Export .sxw report that you can modify in OpenOffice. Once you have modified it you can upload the report using the same wizard.

You are talking about OpenOffice? My OpenOffice is unfortunately in german, ...anyway: there is a drilldown "Extra", but afterwards nothing seems to match your path.
