Hi, I'm using Odoo v8 and this module. Your module works perfect, except that my .pdf files are not readable because some characters are wrap by black boxes. I'm using Vietnamese.

Hi this is really a great

Hi this is really a great module thanks so much for the time taken to develop it.

I picked up something though, it give the error say 30:23 is not a valid float when you try to use it on timesheet activites. Is there a work around to this?

You wrote that "These buttons

You wrote that "These buttons will only appear if the active view is a tree view". I think this may be misleading because the buttons will appear only if the active view is list view. Proof for this is "Bill of Materials Structure" page. The active view is tree view yet there are no visible buttons for export to PDF or Excel. Can you update module so it can print content, for instance, of "Bill of Materials Structure" page? Thanks.

I have installed the module

I have installed the module web_printscreen_zb but it is not showing in my "Bill of Materials Structure" page. I think it is tree view one2many. Is that a limitation?

Where is that am going wrong. Please help me.

Prajul P T's picture

Hi,     Thank You for


    Thank You for bringing this to our notice. The base OpenERP is common so the configuration such as multi company configuration as I explained in the blog will common. So concept in both the blogs may be the same. If you read the two blogs, you can see that the wording are also different. So you cannot say that one of us copied from other. If you have some other query about muticompany configuration, we will be happy to help....

Hello Sir: How to make

Hello Sir:

How to make multiple invoices on a sale order when it contains products from different companies?
My configuration is: - Main Company has: sub company 1, sub company 2. These companies has many products. I wish make multiple invoices when I create a sale order if it contains products from different companies. For example: Sale order contains: - Product A: sub company 1. - Product B: sub company 2. This sale order should make two invoices but in one sale order. Help me, please, I'm new in OpenERP.

Hello Sir, I've gone through

Hello Sir, I've gone through your blog and it really helped me a lot in implementing openerp.I really thanks a lot to you and your in depth explanation about multi-companies wonderful blog. But now I have a requirement where I need to have different sale order and invoice numbering series.
Eg: If Company A is the parent company and company B and C is its sub-company then If a sale order created by company B, then the Sale order series should be SO-B-001 and sale order created by company C, then the sale order series should be SO-C-001 can this be achieved by any type of configuration or what are the things we need to customize to make it possible

Prajul P T's picture

Hi,     There is no need of


    There is no need of any python code level modification for this. You can configure this from OpenERP client itself. Go to Settings > Technical > Sequences and Identifiers > Sequences. Here you can see an entry named "Sales Order". If you open this record, you can see a field called "Company". You can set this field to the company for which you need to use this sequence for. Similarly you can create and assign sequences for each company based on the format you want.
