Hello Friend,

what i can suggest for you is to create a new widget through javascript and xml which can be integrated easily in ODOO and this widget will be able to:

-Open the invoice as a page in the system

-Convert your PDF file to the extension that you want to get.

Hi Jihen,

As Motez suggested, you could use html report, then you use anther api to convert html to excel for example.

Hello Jihen,

I'm affraid there is no other file format support in odoo than pdf.

you can change the report type to html by going to settings/actions/reports
