Hi R.sridevi,

The Openoffice Report Designer is a plugin used to create reports for OpenERP. It is an easy to install and use plugin. The main advantage of this plugin is that anyone can easily create and modify reports for OpenERP.

Installation Procedure

Install using Extension Manager in Openoffice.org Writer

You will find the 'Extension Manager' under the tab 'Tools' in Openoffice.org Writer. Here you can add the 'openerp_report_designer.zip' file. After adding the file, restart the Openoffice.org Writer and the OpenERP Report Designer Menu and Toolbar will be available.

Server Parameters

This functionality is used to connect with the OpenERP Server. Here, we can select the database and login as particular user. And now, we can start creating the report by selecting the 'Open a new report' option in the menu.

With the help of report designer you can modify existing report or create new reports. Suppose you want sxw file of any existing report, open that report in report designer for modification and save it as 'filename.sxw'. There is no other way to convert rml to sxw. Other wise you can create new sxw file name and convert in to rml file.

Thanks a lot....
