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

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.
