Hi Yassine,

- install documentation is at

- aeroo_reports is the base, it produces open document formats

- to go further and have conversion to xls, pdf you need report_aeroo_ooo is the module doing the conversion to pdf etc

There are indeed libraries needed see the link and for report_aeroo_ooo you need open-office running in the background.

Unfortunately due to version problems between python versions (the one used for openerp libs and the one bundled in open-office) some install are nearly impossible.

In concept it is a nice reporting system and the only one we have that is capable of producing editable document, but my experience is not that happy....  

Good luck,

Dear Community, 

I used to create my reports using the openerp report designer plugin into openoffice, thanks to base_report_designer module. Now I'm trying to use Aeroo reports for my reports, because it seems more easy to update, it's not using sxw extension, just odt extension. 

My question is to use it, should I just install the aeroo_reports module, or should I install aeroo reports libraries on my ubuntu 12.04 LTS server, the one hosting my openerp v7 installation ?

If these librairies are not installed, the aeroo reports modules can be installed ?

I'm asking that because I've already the aeroo_report  module installed on my openerp instance. I have a menu right now on configuration/technical/Aeroo Reports . And I was wondering If my previous installation of aeroo report libraries is correct.

Besides, when trying to create an aeroo report for an object, there is only one output format : ODF Text Document (.odt) , I want to have pdf output format, excel,... and so on. what do I need to get this outputs formats ?.

I also want that my reports generate automatically for every page a predefined header and footer, how can I do this ? 

What is the relation that aeroo reports have with webkit report ? is it usefull for headers and footers ?.

I know I asked so many questions, but this is really important for me to know. 

Thank you dear community.
