I read about this new version "A new report engine editions (consisting of WebKit + + Qweb publisher) will facilitate management reporting and empower users in customizing and maintenance editions commercial documents (invoices, quotes ...)." But I don't find the feature easy customizing reports (invoices, purchase orders, etc.).

Thank you for your help

Hi Fabienne,

Why don't you try editing reports with OpenOffice or simply editing the RML file directly. If you need solution for any specific issue in reporting, Please do let me know.

I use OpenOffice to edit reports but Iit's a little difficult, especially on accounting reports.

I thought the management reports with version 8 was simplified. Is there another feature or module to integrate ?

thank you very much FM

So, I can print delivery_order pdf.

Thank you for your reply

Personnaly, I use pentaho reporting https://github.com/WillowIT/Pentaho-reports-for-OpenERP because the design is very user friendly and there are some great ressources here : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQPfPxwMHvUpWjq50hBrbKw
