Pre-defined export function

Can we define an export in advance? I mean is it possible to create a button that will automatically export the pre-defined fields and push them to an Excel or .csv file?

Also, try http://www.zbeanztech.com/blog/printscreen-openerp-7

A new option to "Print" (Export) the currently selected records. Since this works with list view - you can create, save and apply any custom filter you want.

Ray, I love you. Thanks a bundle man. This module is far better than anything I would have set up.

It is great. We use it for all our clients. It is actually based on a great module from 6.1 at http://v6apps.openerp.com/addon/8885 called web_export_view

This addon might be helpfull for you ea_import. There you can define SQL query for exporting to .csv file. Besides, in query you can use active_ids of selected records to use in exporting,

Hey Nazarii, I'll look into this for some additional specific exports. Thank you for your suggestion.
