What to use to create simple invoice or invoicing system?

Post by Jone » Tue, 31 May 2005 08:07:38


Hello
I have got office 2003, and could anybody advise me if their is any inbuilt
system to create simple invoicing system, or would i be best to use
just word and use a table to make the columsn line up nicely.

For example in a normal text email, its impossible to make the text look
neat in rows. or tabbed like you can with a typewritter.

Wondered which was the most appropriate office product. I have office
publishing but have never used it.

I'd use Excel. You can make your own invoice from scratch or modify one of
the templates to be found at

When your invoice is ready, choose File> Send To> Mail Recipient.

Hi Ian
Many thanks for reply.

Do you or anybody know where does excell put the template once you download
one from the net? Do you need to save it before it actually makes a copy of
it? OR just by downloading it does it automatically save it?

You have to save it after downloading (or modify and save). If you save it as
a template (.xlt) it should default to your templates folder, in XP that is:
C:\Documents and Settings\(USERNAME)\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates
where it will be available with your other templates. You can then base new
invoices on that template.

Thanks Ian! These small details make all the difference. I've not actually
used templates before.

You are welcome.You haven't said what version of Office you are running, but
in any of them you should have a shortcut labeled "New Office Document."
Open that and what you see will be your Office templates. New ones that you
download and save to that default location will show up under the "General"
tab. Templates are a way to make multiple documents of the same type but
different data. Select one, click OK, and a new document will be created
based on that template.

Thanks Ian,
Templates do seem to be a good way to increase productivity, I'm quite
surprised its taken me this long to get around to it.

Seems you can spend years learning about this stuff. I wonder how long a
course would be if you purely learnt to use the full power of microsoft
office. I can't see there is a system on the planet as good as the microsoft
suite.
