Module base_report_designer and Odoo8

on 10/16/14, 10:30 AM 692 views

Odoo 8 is actually using webkit for generate every report. I just want to know if the module base_report_designer is still working without the rml file in odoo8.

I could not get it to work on Windows 8  64bit.  When I try to edit an exisiting report like Trial Balance I get an error message

I could install base_report_designer module in odoo v8, but appears that the zip plugin is not delivered anymore with the v8 version of the plugin. On my old apache open office 3.4, I have the plugin that came with v7. It can connect to the v8 system and get the list of reports, but it fails to open the report I need... Looks like we will have to go for the new approach described in https://github.com/odoo/odoodays-2014/blob/master/v8_reporting_engine/index.rst

I hope this answers your question.

Regards, Pavel
