I've just installed OpenERP 7, and I'm trying to get to grips with it. I've just installed the Accounting and Finance module so far.

When I print an invoice, there's nothing on it to indicate whether or not it's been paid.

I often want to give a client a copy of an invoice after they've paid it to act as a receipt.

Is there a way of doing that?

An example customizing the Invoice RML:

<para style="terp_default_9">
  Current balance due for this invoice is: [[ formatLang(o.residual, digits=get_digits(dp='Account'),
  currency_obj=o.currency_id) ]]

Adding the residual field via OpenOffice will achieve the same thing.

Excellent -- thank you. That's the sort of pointer I was looking for.

No there is not such indication in OpenERP default invoice report, you need to go to customization for that report.

OK, that's fine. What's the best way to customise a printed report these days? I've seen discussion of various approaches (OpenOffice, webkit, etc.).
