I try to connect openerp server by openoffice writer. I get an error message "group not found , create a group named openoffice report designer"

How can i connect to the openerp server? I use win7, the server is on my computer as well.


Problem Solved: --------------------- I've had the same problem and tried a lot of things, this is how it worked: 1) Install OpenOffice 4.1.1 in english US. (Not in your language) 2) OpenERP by going to Reporting > Configuration > Report Designer 3) Then click the “Download openerp_report_designer.zip”, it downloads a file without the extension .zip, you have tu put it yourself to the end of the file. 4) OpenOffice 4.1.1. -> Open the extension manager from the main menu by going to Tools > Extension Manager and Add openerp_report_designer.zip Then try it, and tell me.

See if there is a newer version of the openoffice report designer than what you have.

To solve your problem, you may use your server address or wherever your Openerp installed instead of localhost per example: say it is at

Try these and see if its solve your problem.

I hope this information is informative and helpful.

Good luck.
