GnuCash can do invoices. Not presently DB aware, but that is/will be
worked on. Not web based, but open source. www.gnucash.org

I use simple shell scripts to create my invoices.

What features do you need?

What is the input like?

John.

That is for ledger based applications (like quickbooks on windows)
right, here I need to generate som einvoices for customers, also I need
to store their details on Linux PC database, so that next time I can
access based on some key (telephone number or last name).

Could you suggest sometjing, I kept my sample application below also.

What details do you need to store?

Will the data be entered or derived from info already on the
system? Do you want to enter each client as your prepare the
invoice? Etc....


Below what? This is usenet, not a web forum. Please read

Much better than that.


SQL-Ledger will do everything you need. You could also just use Postgresql
directly, but I don't see why you would want to.


I have no idea what you mean by that.

Try SQLLedger <URL: http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ;

I've _started_ evaluating this, and it /seems/ very complete.

It's available as the Debian package sql-ledger, if you run Debian or a
derivative.

With the description you give here, I can't help wondering whether you
want anything more than a spreadsheet

Why not try Open Office? Its spreadsheet will do what you want and can
link to its database for customer info. Or just keep your customer info
on another spreadsheet since it doesn't sound like you need a really
huge database.

There is no sample. You removed both the sample and the comments I made.


Spreadsheets run on Linux


Wrong

OK, let's start with the basics: Do you know what Usenet is? Do you know
what a News Group is? How about a news server?

Google unfortunately decided not to use the standards of quoting on
Usenet. A quick fix can be read on the following page:
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

If you want to get better help and learn more, please read on.

I sympathize with your problems, and am more than willing to help you
solve them, to do so you should follow the correct quoting principles
as explained in the FAQ of this group available on
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

While you are at it, read the whole document and the links provided in
it as well.

Due to the bad quoting habits and also due to the amount of drivel
coming from postings done via Google Groups, several people have
resulted in kill filing (not reading or responding to) postings done
with Google. This means fewer people will be able or willing to help.

To get the best possible result to your postings, it is better to us a
newsreader or Usenet client. Linux has many dedicated news readers, as
well as browsers with built in news readers.

It's not your fault you got sucked in. It will be your fault, if you
don't act to remedy the situation.

If you're running SUSE Linux, look on your menu, under Internet -->
News, and you'll see which news readers you have installed. If you run
something else, look for a good newsreader. Don't use an email program.

Find a Usenet server that you can post to. Your ISP probably has one.
There are also free ones out there, that Google will help you locate.
Type in "Usenet free servers". better yet, use this:
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

The one your provider has is most likely the better, faster and easier
choice. Set up the news reader of your choice, download the groups
list, type linux in the search box, and subscribe to alt.os.linux.suse.

When I see correct quoting from you, instead of what Google is forcing
you to do, I'll be right there to greet you, and help get you going.
Until then:

I am out of here.
