Want to print invoice in landscape format

on 7/16/14, 5:42 PM 2,386 views


I am using basic accounting module "account". In that under reports, I have account_print_invoice.rml and account_print_invoice.sxw. In .sxw, I have my content in page landscape format. I converted it to .rml using command line using openerpswxtorml. Now, I am trying to print this invoice report and its not formated properly. So, I checked my .sxw and did print preview and it looks good. I also tried to change in rml header and footer from settings-> companies->Header/Footer which changes in all my other reports. I just want invoice report in landscape and other in potrait.

Anyone have any idea how I can make only one report format in landscape. I appreciate your help.

Look in you rml file, on beginnig of file is a tag:
<template title="Invoices" author="OpenERP S.A.(sales@openerp.com)" allowSplitting="20">
    <pageTemplate id="first">
      <frame id="first" x1="34.0" y1="28.0" width="530" height="786"/>

change values of width and heigth to print in landscape.. 
that will do for a start, after that... you will probably need to edit the rml fields also.. to fit new landscape format..

Have you try using OpenERP Report Designer plugin for OpenOffice to update your report. OpenERP (6.1 which I tested) read rml from database, so it doesn't read your updated rml file.
