I am using Odoo 8.

I need to change invoice format for local taxation Laws.

I am using Libreoffice.

I am using Eva Pinter's advisory, except I am running on own server.

The Menu bar shows "OpenERP Report Designer" in Libreoffice

Yet when I click on "Server Parameters" nothing happens.

Looking forward to some good working advice

In version 8 none of these OpenERP Report Designers seem to work. I am facing the same problems with the OpenOffice plugin and there are numerous of reports about this sadly. Also looking forward to a fix from somebody. :)

Hi Yenthe,

I think our understanding of the English language is at play here. Some would list these problems under different headings etc. So we have to do quite a lot of informative reading! :)

Look at this link. https://www.odoo.com/forum/help-1/question/sales-invoice-layout-64031

It works to a certain degree. However the client details do not like to be changed. We have to have here the client VAT Nr on the invoice and invoice must have header reading "VAT INVOICE".
I have given up trying to get the designer working through Libreoffice.
