I want to print report from my form view...for that i have to fetch data from wizard...Can anyone tell me how to browse record of wizard in my main python file???

Why would you need wizard data for this? Please elaborate.

What specific report are you trying to print? That might help me understand what you're trying to do. Once you're done using a wizard, you should never need to access the wizard data again, the relevant info that came out of it should already be written to normal ERP objects.

You can read the data from wizard as follows:

data = self.read(cr, uid, ids)[0]

and then you can return those data when you return for printing the report.


def check_report(self, cr, uid, ids, context=None):

    if context is None:
        context = {}
    data = self.read(cr, uid, ids)[0]
    datas = {
         'ids': context.get('active_ids',[]),
         'model': 'account.analytic.journal',
         'form': data
    return {
        'type': 'ir.actions.report.xml',
        'report_name': 'account.analytic.journal',
        'datas': datas,

Then you can access this data from your report as follows:

[[ data['form']['filter'] ]]

hi..I am using browse function in my main python file..then it giving error like above.

Please try with read function..In many cases, openerp used the read function to get the data from wizard for printing report.
