This module provides an OpenOffice.org/LibreOffice extension plus a small interface to the Aeroo Report module on the OpenERP side to allow mail merge directly from the Writer application. Mail merge is performed on records stored in the saved selection in OpenERP. The result is a single document in editable ODF, appearing in a new office window.
The ability to perform mail merge on the fly reliefs the administrator from having to create a Report XML record in the OpenERP database and upload the template after every change.
Note that the ability to store and share selections of OpenERP records is provided by the Saved Selection module by Therp BV. Due to this dependency, this module is only fully functional in combination with the OpenERP web client.
After installation of this module, you can download the extension file from your OpenERP database under
Settings -> Customization -> Aeroo Reports -> Download Office Extension
Known issues: If the resulting document does not contain page breaks between the merged template on different records, make sure that the document ends with a line break.
This module is compatible with OpenERP 6.1.
