Hi everybody,

I'm trying to add an "if" request in my invoice report but I can't find the correct syntax.

I have companies and contacts (who are not linked to a company). I have a number (x_nocompany) for each company and a personal number (ref) for each contact.

What I want to do is if the invoice is for a company then the company number appear else if the invoice is for a contact then the contact number appear.

Now my code is the following :

[[ (o.partner_id.ref=='') and (o.partner_id.x_nocompany) or (o.partner_id.ref) ]]

Someone could help me ?

Many thanks in advance.
