why does report designer mess up my invoice?

When I use report designer in open office and just choose "Modify existing report" and then say "Send to server" without changing anything, still the customer address is gone from my invoice.

Can anyone tell me how to make sure that no changes (other than those I put in myself) are saved by just opening a report?

I would avoid using the plugin. I lost a lot of time messing around with the plugin. I suggest rml or jasper to create reports.

Using Openoffice 3.4.1 on OS X 10.7.5 and when I open "invoice - Invoices" report with "Modify existing report", and choose "Send to server" without altering anything, the customer's address will be gone from my invoices. Very strange and very annoying actually.

Solved! Solved this issue by copying the customer address section from another report (quotation). Might not be the most elegant solution, but it worked. All looks fine again on my invoices.

Are you using Openoffice or LibreOffice.

LibreOffice 4 is messing up the layout. Use version 3.x from LibreOffice or Openoffice
