Subject: Re: [ubl-dev] Simple ODF/XForms (OOo2/SO8) for UBL 1.0 Invoice


Note too that I've used a fragment of the 
'genericode' (www.genericode.org) XML
as an internal instance in the form to
provide the codelist values for a currency
combo box. This could, I think, be used
in other XForms and with other codelists.

All the best

  Hi Stephen

  I'm supposed to be taking over from Micah Dubinko on the mapping of UBL to Xforms via OO, so it could be that I'll have some questions, additions to this over the next coming time. I suppose the two points you mention below: the need to have more than 10 lines, and to strip out empty content are the most obviously important. Any other things you see as being important to add to the solution.

    Please note that if you open these forms
    from the web archive they will need the
    filename extensions changing to .odt

    Also, if you have unix/linux you'll need to
    change the target filepath/url for the submission
    and the same change for the linked file of the
    readonly form. At present both point to
    file:///c:/invoice.xml so they could be changed
    to something like file:///home/invoice.xml (not
    quite sure if this is correct).

    It should be possible to create a simple UBL 1.0
    Invoice with one form (saved locally) then use
    the other form to read it (from where it is saved)
    and convert it to pdf (OpenOffice 2 and Star
    Office 8 have this facility). Then either or both
    as appropriate could be sent say by email (for
    micro/small businesses this might be OK - please
    don't blame me if it isn't) as attachments and/or
    imported somehow into a finance system or 
    spreadsheet (perhaps with an office product
    macro, say). Note that the first form, if used to
    directly create a pdf, will in OOo2/SO8, produce
    a form that can be edited before printing and this
    would be unacceptably risky for sending as an
    Invoice. Again, please accept that the use of the
    forms is at users own risk.

    All the best

    Stephen Green

    PS Really loved Juha's UBL greeting customisation!

    Peace and Goodwill to all -
    And y'all Love the Almighty back with all you've got!

      Just in time for the holidays I've produced
      (for 'Open Source Academy' but anyone can 
      use them if you do so at your own risk) a
      couple of forms, one for input, the other for
      reading and exporting to PDF, to produce
      crude but possible useful UBL 1.0 invoices.
      They would probably suit a micro business
      and illustrate the ODF/XForms combination
      used in OpenOffice 2 and StarOffice 8.
      Please forgive the ultra-simplicity (there are
      just 10 lines and I couldn't yet find a way to
      not output lines when they are void of data).

      I'd welcome feedback so I can improve these
      (again as part of some open source work).

      I hope the archive can accept the attachments,
      sorry if this doesn't work - please ignore this
      email then and I'll try another way later.

      All the best and happy holidays.

      Stephen Green
