Magento did not save Customer id on Sales_flat_Invoice table so If you want to filter the invoice Collection using customer id and you need to MySQL join with Sales_flat_order table

Step1: Get Invoice resource Collection

  $collection= Mage::getResourceModel('sales/order_invoice_collection');

Step2: add sales_flat_order table to collection.In magento, sales_flat_order and sales_flat_invoice table related with Invoice table order_id and sales_flat_order table entity_id

$select = $collection->getSelect();
$select->joinLeft(array('order' => Mage::getModel('core/resource')->getTableName('sales/order')), 'order.entity_id=main_table.order_id', array('customer_id' => 'customer_id'))

Now You can filter invoice collection by customer id

  • Have you tried running this code live? 'Can't retrieve entity config: sales/flat_order' is the error I receive when trying to do so.

Magento does not store the customer_id column in sales_flat_invoice which is where the collection is found. It does however store the order_id field, so the following approach works 100%:

$orders = Mage::getModel("sales/order")->getCollection()->addFieldToFilter('customer_id',$customer_id);
$order_ids = array();
foreach ($orders as $order){
$collection = Mage::getModel("sales/order_invoice")->getCollection()->addFieldToFilter('order_id',array('in'=>$order_ids));
  • The first four lines of code assemble the order_id which belong to the customer.
  • The fifth line simply filters the invoice collection by those order_id values.
