KeyError with Custom Invoice

Hi all,

I am trying to create a custom invoice via a module, and am getting this error:


(<type 'exceptions.KeyError'>, KeyError(u'report.report.ec.invoice',), <traceback object at 0x7f69d46bc560>)

I followed the conventions that I used to replace a Sales Order, but to no avail. I don't understand why it is looking for report.report.ec.invoice, but it might be a problem with my naming. Here is my code (I am sure the __init__.py and __openerp__.py files are correct):











        attachment="(object.state in ('open','paid')) and ('INV'+(object.number or '').replace('/','')+'.pdf')"






import time

from openerp.report import report_sxw


class ec_invoice(report_sxw.rml_parse):

    def __init__(self, cr, uid, name, context):

        super(ec_invoice, self).__init__(cr, uid, name, context=context)


            'time': time,









Any idea what is going on here? I am stumped. Thanks!

Just write last line of code of py file as like below.

report_sxw.report_sxw( 'report.report.ec.invoice', 'account.invoice', 'addons/EC_Invoice/report/ec_invoice.rml', parser=ec_invoice )

I hope it will resolve your issue.
