How to trigger calculations by clicking on a button

Hi, I have a model in which 'rate of interest' is multiplied by 'principal amount' and 'no. of months passed'

This calculation happens through a function field that is linked to a function that calculates the 'amount to be returned'.

I soon realized the drawback that the 'number of months passed' are only taken on the date when that entry was created.

Now I need a button that will calculate the current latest 'amount to be returned' when the button is clicked, for all entries in the table.

Can someone tell me how this can be done?

Here's my code:


class record(orm.Model):


def _amount_returns(self, cr, uid, ids, field, arg, context=None):

context = context or {}

res = {}


def monthdelta(d1, d2):

delta = 0

while True:

mdays = monthrange(d1.year, d1.month)[1]

d1 += timedelta(days=mdays)

if d1 <= d2:

delta += 1



return delta

for record in self.browse(cr, uid, ids, context=context):


# month_diff=(datetime.today()-datetime.strptime(record.start_date,"%Y-%m-%d")).months


# print(month_diff)


r = relativedelta.relativedelta(datetime.today(),datetime.strptime(record.start_date,"%Y-%m-%d"))

print("Monthly interest")

record.monthly_interest=((record.roi or 0.0)*(r.months or 1)*record.amount)


#print((record.roi or 0.0)*(r.months or 1)*record.amount)



res[record.id] = (record.amount or 0.0) * (1 + (record.roi or 0.0)*(r.months or 1))

return res


'investment_id':fields.many2one('investment.model','Name of Investment'),

'investor_id':fields.many2one('res.partner','Investor Name'),

'start_date':fields.date('Start Date'),

#'end_date':fields.date('End Date'),

'amount':fields.float('Amount Invested'),

#'status_paid':fields.boolean('Total Amount Paid'),

#'status_returned':fields.boolean('Total Amount Returned'),

'done':fields.boolean('Mark As Done',invisible=True),

'roi':fields.float('Rate of Interest in fraction'),

'monthly_interest':fields.float('Cumulative Monthly Interest'),

'returns':fields.function(_amount_returns, digits_compute=dp.get_precision('Account'), string='Amount to be returned',


'record': (lambda self, cr, uid, ids, c={}: ids, ['amount', 'roi'], 10),



<record id="record_form_view" model="ir.ui.view">
