    Printing a report from a button a wizard is quite easy and very fast in execution. Its really awesome when you created a report on your own format using OpenOffice or any other report designing tool for OpenERP, and you can call that report on a single click of a button.

    I created a report and sent it to server earlier, now I wanted to launch the same report using a wizard. I had to create wizard for this. my wizard folder: (wizard class)

    I created a wizard, added the necessary fields, and a many2many relation as my report belongs to the invoice module(report), so that i can get a list of the invoices. Notice the print_report function that tells to fetch those invoices that fall in the given date range, then return the report name. I used my own report so I used technical name of my report. Type should always be

    class print_my_report(osv.osv_memory):
        _name = ''
        _description = 'Daly Sale Report'       
        _columns = {
            'date_from''Date From',store=True),
            'date_to''Date To',store=True),
            'invoice_ids': fields.many2many('account.invoice',string='Filter on invoices',help="Only selected invoices will be printed"),
        _defaults = {
            'date_from': lambda *a: time.strftime('%Y-%m-%d'),
            'date_to': lambda *a: time.strftime('%Y-%m-%d'),
        def print_report(self, cr, uid, ids, context=None):
            datas = {}
            if context is None:
                context = {}
            data =, uid, ids,['date_from', 'date_;to', 'invoice_ids'], context=context)
            date_from = data[0]['date_from'] 
            date_to = data[0]['date_to']
            obj = self.pool.get('account.invoice')
            ids =, uid, [('date_invoice','>=',date_from),('date_invoice','<=',date_to)])
            datas = {
                     'ids': ids,
                     'model': 'account.invoice',
                     'form': data
            return {'type': '', 'report_name': 'account.invoice.rndKhHYk', 'datas': datas}  

    Then print_my_report_view.xml, just need to create a view for wizard as you wish and simply add the button and call the print_report method on it.

    <record id="print_my_report_view" model="ir.ui.view">
                <field name="name">My Report</field>
                <field name="model"></field>
                <field name="type">form</field>            
                <field name="arch" type="xml">
                <form string="Print Report">
                        <group colspan="4" >
                            <field name="date_from" filter_domain="[('date_invoice','&gt;=',self)]" />
                            <field name="date_to" filter_domain="[('date_invoice','&lt;=',self)]"  />
                            <separator string="Print Only" colspan="4" />
                            <group colspan = "4">
                                <field name="invoice_ids" colspan="4" nolabel="1"/>
                        <group colspan="4" col="6">                     
                            <button  icon="gtk-ok" name="print_report" string="Print" type="object"/>

    That's about it, all the best!
