It's pretty simple
1) Download and install Apache Open Office 3.4 or lower.
2) Go to your openERP -> Settings -> Apps -> Find OpenOffice Report Designer(base_report_designer) and follow the instructions there. It will give you link to a archive with Open Office plugin that you have to install in your Open Office. The plugin has instructions how it should be done.
3) After you've done 1 & 2 go to Open Office Writer -> From main menu OpenERP Report Designer -> Connect to server
4) When you are connected to your openERP server from Open Office you can use "Modify existing report" and open the report you need...

For converting an SXW to RML do the following
Open a terminal, then Navigate to the report folder in your module and execute the following:
gopakumar@gopakumar-desktop:~/Workspace/Project/openerp/addons/module_name/report$ python openerp_sxw2rml.py name_of_sxw_file.sxw > name_of_rml_2b_generated.rml
Before this you have to copy the
openerp_sxw2rml.py file from module /base_report_designer/openerp_sxw2rml to your module's report folder.
