Logo image and company information

To replace the default LOGO image and enter your company information on the Invoice worksheet:

  1. Open your invoice template in Microsoft Excel.
  2. Switch to the "Invoice" worksheet if it is not active (or is not the current worksheet). Switch to the Invoice ribbon tab if it is not activated.
  3. If you have installed Uniform Invoice Software version 4.12 or higher versions, click the "Replace Logo Image" button on the "Invoice" ribbon tab and follow the wizard to specify your own logo image. Go to step 5.

    If you are running an earlier version of Uniform Invoice Software that does not provide the "Replace Logo Image" command, now you should unprotect the "Invoice" worksheet.

    By default, the "Invoice" worksheet is protected to avoid overwriting formulas accidentally. To unprotect it, in Excel 2007/2010/2013/2016 click Review tab / Changes group / Unprotect Sheet.

  4. Switch to design mode by clicking the "Design Mode" button on the Invoice ribbon.
  5. On the "Invoice" worksheet, enter your company information to replace the default text labels, such as your company name, address, and contact information.
  6. To further customize your logo image, or to add / replace the logo image manually, follow the steps below:
    1. Right click the Logo image, and select Properties from the menu.

    3. Browse to the folder containing your icon file. Select and open the icon file.
    4. Close the Properties dialog box.
    5. Drag the border of the image object to resize it, if needed.
    6. If you don't need the LOGO image, follow the steps below.

      1. Click the LOGO image to select it.
      2. Hit DEL key on your keyboard.
      3. Deleting the LOGO image leaves an empty area to the left of the Company Information section. You may like to move the entire Company Information section to fill in the empty area. To do this: Drag your mouse to select the entire Company Information area, including Company Name, Street Address, City, ST Zip Code, etc.; Push your mouse key on the border of the selected area; drag it to the new location.
    7. Exit design mode, by clicking the Design button again.
    8. Protect the Invoice worksheet.

      In Excel 2007/2010/2013/2016, you can find the command in the Changes group of the Review ribbon tab.

    9. Save your invoice template by clicking Office button -> Save in Excel 2007, or by clicking File -> Save in Excel 2010 and 2013/2016.

      Tax types

      The default tax system may not satisfy you. You can set your tax system easily by following the steps below.

      1. Click Settings button on the Invoice worksheet to open the Settings window.
      2. Click Taxes.

        Taxes page on the Settings window

      3. Choose your tax system: No Tax, One Tax, or Two Taxes. If you have 2 taxes, click the option Tax2 is applied to tax1 so tax2 is calculated on the sum of the price+tax1. Fill in your tax names and percentages in the appropriate text boxes.
      4. Click Apply.
      5. Close the Settings window and return to Excel.
      6. Click the Save button on the Excel toolbar to save the modified workbook.

      Additionally, each product has a Taxable attribute that controls whether the tax rate will be applied to the product. For each invoice, you can also set its tax rates and Taxable attributes.

      Creating a new database (optional)

      On new installation, the default invoice template is connected with the sample.mdb database. This database is installed for demonstration purposes. You can use this database to try out how Uniform Invoice Software works. After reviewing and testing the software, you will want to create a new database for your own data. To create a new database, follow the steps below:

      1. On the Invoice worksheet, click the Settings button to open the Settings window.
      2. Click the Database tab.

        Database page of the Settings window

      3. Click Create new database under the Access Database tab.
      4. Select a folder to store your new database file and enter the database file name. Click Save to create a new database file.
      5. If you want to open the newly created database for current workbook, click the Open database button under the Access Database tab. Then select the database file you just created.
      6. If the database is successfully opened, the database name will be displayed below the Current Database label on the Invoice worksheet.
      7. The full path and file name of the database is stored in a hidden cell in the workbook. To make the workbook connect to/open the new database automatically next time you open it, click the Save button on the Excel toolbar to save the workbook.
