printing "sale.order" fields in account.invoice pdf (qweb)

My Goal is to print fields of the "sale.order" into the invoice pdf. 

Normaly I use 

<span t-field="o.partner_id"/>

(invoice_line for example).

and nest it like this for example:

<span t-field="o.partner_id.phone"/> 

That mostly work for account.invoice and all kinds of connected fields.

Is there a way to "nest to" the informations of the sale.order which Im missing? Or is there maybe a way not to start from "o"?

I found the solution. As said, there isnt any connection to the sale.order so I build a module to make this connection:

from openerp.osv import fields, osv

class account_invoice(osv.osv): 
    _inherit = "account.invoice"
    _columns = {
        'sale_order_ids': fields.many2many('sale.order', 'sale_order_invoice_rel'
        , 'invoice_id', 'order_id', 'Sale Orders', readonly=True,
        help="The sale order(s) that generated this invoice. Multiple sales '\     
        'orders may have been combined for the same customer to generate one invoice."),

now its possible to nest the fields like this in the invoice pdf:

<span t-field="o.sale_order_ids.name"/>

Thank you for the explanation. Can you please show

- how this code would look like when I want to access the sales.order module not from accounts but from the Manufacturing Orders module in a qweb report.

- where to put the code. Do I need to create a new file or can I place this into a specific file? Please explain where to copy this file into.

Thank you.

Hello Philipp Becker,

There is a link between invoice and sale order.

Please refer _get_invoiced method of 'sale.order'
