How / where to edit reports in Odoo 8?

on 9/25/14, 4:24 AM 1,820 views

Hey guys

I've been having some problems with reports. Whenever I make an order in my eCommerce it will make a sales order. However, I would like to change the layout and some of the settings of this PDF.
Sadly the OpenOffice report designer does not work with Odoo 8 (RC1).

Any solutions or ideas on how to customize reports in Odoo 8? I would also like to know where the 'templates' for making those PDF's are stored. I can't find the file that is responsible for generating a sales order after ordering something from the webshop..

file to modify (or rather to inherit) : addons/sale/views/report_saleorder.xml

Doesn't seem to be the correct file.. Edited code: http://i.imgur.com/VXcGNT5.png PDF after editing, saving & rebooting: http://i.imgur.com/y6BRbMa.png

You should also "upgrade" sale module : - select "sale" module in "setting\modules\applications" menu - click on "upgrade" button
