Dear, Ashmsh.M

as you mentioned yourself, examples for your requirement are the HR Timesheet / HR holiday reports.
Those are created using XSL:RML transformation with code generated XML templates. And that's what I used too.
To get the number of days of a month OpenERP uses this very helpful, small function:

def lengthmonth(year, month):
    if month == 2 and ((year % 4 == 0) and ((year % 100 != 0) or (year % 400 == 0))):
        return 29
    return [0, 31, 28, 31, 30, 31, 30, 31, 31, 30, 31, 30, 31][month]

If you prefer any other Report Designer you should add the information of the amount of days to the object you want to print, and then loop over it.
Somehow like:

[[ repeatIn(object.day_list, 'days', 'td' ]]

Hope that will help a little.

Hi am new to python , i have no idea about how to implement this code in my report/ how to link my report to the python function. will u plese give an example.

on 3/12/14, 5:46 AM

Please review addons\hr_holidays\report\holidays_summary.xsl and


as an example.

Besides: medhabibs solution for getting the last day of a month also works very well.
