For this reason, the "ESTIMATE#" support all the features assigned to the "Invoice#" cell by Invoice Manager for Excel (namely Uniform Invoice Software). For example, if you click "Save To DB" or "Save Invoice", a sequential, progressive and unique estimate# is generated automatically if the "Estimate#" cell is left blank (see our gallery page at Excel Invoice Template Automatic Invoice Numbering).
