Reports not auto-saved to attachments

I have installed the DMS module. Per docs, if a report has a value in the field "Save as Attachment Prefix", a generated report will be saved. The Invoice already has this defined and I also wanted to define it for Purchase Orders. Both reports are not saved to ATTACHMENTS, though. Must I also globally activate this feature somewhere?

regards, Tilli

the docu I'm referring to is: https://doc.openerp.com/7.0/book/7/7_19_Documents/7_19_Documents_searching/

hi Ludo, thanks for your help on this. no Attachment being saved, wether hitting the PRINT button, or choosing PRINT and then the corresponding template (RfQ or PO). I don't mean an E-Mail attachment, just a regular file-attachment. I have no option to save to the filesystem. I think I read somewhere that with 7.x you can no longer save to the FS, but everything is saved to the DB.

I finally found the problem. When creating an email from a PO, an error message reveals that the SYNOLOGY NAS is missing the required "poppler-utils". I took the short path of disabling content-indexing (see https://www.odoo.com/forum/help-1/question/error-saving-pdf-in-knowledge-management-27423) but one could also install IPKG and the poppler-utils (see http://forum.synology.com/wiki/index.php/Overview_on_modifying_the_Synology_Server,_bootstrap,_ipkg_etc#Installing_compiled.2Fbinary_programs_using_ipkg and/or http://www.synology-wiki.de/index.php/IPKG).

now the files are created. thanks for all the help, though!

Does it save as an attachment when you generate the report yourself (as in: press the "Print" button on for example an invoice)? I think attachment in OpenERP and mail-attachment are 2 different things in this case.

For as far as I know, you do not need to set any more checks. Do you save to filesystem or database?
