For now Uniform Invoice Software does not provide native support for quotations, which means there is no such a feature like "convert quotations to invoice with a few mouse clicks". On the other hand, you can of course create quotations with Uniform Invoice Software.
All our templates here on InvoicingTemplate.com support Uniform Invoice Software. While Uniform Invoice Software, as the name implies, is created mainly for billing and invoicing, it is able to handle different types of forms like quoting templates shown below, and Estimate Templates.
Supporting for Uniform Invoice Software allows our quotation templates connect with back end database (by default, the program uses Microsoft Access database, but it also support MS SQL Server database), enabling enhanced features like automatic numbering, easily lookup of client and items, reporting etc. These type of features couldn't be implemented using pure Excel quotation templates and Word quotation templates.
Free Excel Quote Template is a sub-topic of Estimate Templates . Here are our templates closely related to Free Excel Quote Template.
As an Excel spreadsheet template, we use Excel formulas to calculate subtotal, tax and total. For example, for the subtotal field, the Excel formula assigned to the subtotal field is "=SUM(oknLinetotal_1:oknLinetotal_22)". This is one of the big advantages of using Excel spreadsheet templates. While you can create beautiful and professional forms too using Microsoft Word, Publisher, PowerPoint or even Adobe Photoshop, it is much easier when you need to do some calculations. This ability, combined with custom fields (user-defined fields) supported by Uniform Invoice Software, resulting extremely flexible form designs, as you can see from the samples online here on InvoicingTemplate.com. Or see the PDF quotation sample to find out what it will like when your customer receive the quotation created using UIS.

This invoice design has 6 columns on the invoice detail section - Description, Date, Hours, Rate / Fee and Amount. The Amount is calculated automatically using Excel formulas once the Hours and Rate / Fee are filled in. The other 5 columns, Description, Date, Hours and Rate / Fee are all fillable in this invoice format. As you can see from the screen shots below, this is basically a hourly service invoice template, like Hourly Service Invoice Template. You can also find other interesting invoice template in the Consulting Invoice Template category or Service Invoice Template category here on InvoicingTemplate.com, including those designed specially with UK (United Kingdom) style.
When creating an invoice, be sure to include your contact information. Put your name, address, phone number, email address, and even your website at the top of the invoice. If you are USA-based charge over $600 over the course of the year, you'll probably need to give your client your business's Federal Tax ID number (so they can send you a 1099-MISC, see Form 1099-MISC, Miscellaneous Income - IRS.gov, or Form 1099-MISC - Wikipedia).
All templates available here on InvoicingTemplate.com are in Microsoft spreadsheet format, including this template - Professional Freelance Bill or Professional Freelance Billing Format. On the Internet you may find that there are freelance invoice template in Microsoft Word format or Google Docs too. But Excel formatted spreadsheet format has its unique features. For example, you can easily apply formulas to do calculations.
The columns are titled with "Hours" and "Hourly Rate". However we didn't change the underlying database field names. So in the underlying database, which could be either Microsoft Access or Microsoft SQL Server, the corresponding fields are still "Quantity" and "Unit Price". Nearly all invoice templates created for hours worked take the same approach. The purpose of this is to simplify database design. Likewise, the field titled with "Work Description" is in face the "Notes" field in the underlying database.
The original voucher template, Payment Voucher Template (Golden Shop), has a custom field Weight defined in both the Product and Invoice Body database tables. With this general purpose Excel Payment Voucher Template, InvoicingTemplate.com removed the Weight custom field from it and made it a general purpose voucher template.
This template includes 4 columns - Description, Quantity, Rate and Amount. With the "Description" column you itemize what are being invoiced, such as lawn mowing, edging, weed control, pruning / trimming, fertilizing, spring / fall clean-up, planting beds, tree trimming, etc. As we all know, an invoice is essentially an itemized statement of money owed for goods shipped or services rendered. It is a common recognition that a detailed invoice reduces the possibility of doubt regarding your charges, and thus reduce the possible delay of payments.
Although the "Item#" column is moved out of the printable estimate form, it is still functional - that is, Uniform Invoice Software still supports the "in-cell lookup" feature. Which means that, you can simply enter the item# into a cell to retrieve the description from the backend Access database, to avoid typing the same text again and again. If you have a very long product list, another tool provided by Uniform Invoice Software could help, which is called on-sheet picker. When you click and select any cell on the item line, a litter button appear underneath the cell. Click this button to open a window that contains the full list of your products / items. On the top of the window you can find a "search bar", which allows you to search for an item by any field defined for your products - Item# (SKU#), description, prices, or even custom fields (if you use it).
In this design sample the big title "INVOICE" is not a general static text, but an Excel Word Art object. Word Art is a powerful feature supported by Microsoft Office suite, including Word, Excel, and Power Point etc. Compared to general text, Word Art support more formatting options. To find this out in Excel, click to select the Word Art object, and then click and activate the "Format" ribbon tab. Note that in order to include the Word Art object in the bakery and cake shop PDF invoice, the object must be named with "oknWidget" prefix. Otherwise, it will be removed from the extracted Excel spreadsheet invoices or generated PDF invoices. For example, the command buttons, such as "Customers", "Products" and "Reports", are named with "oknCmd*" prefix, so they are all removed from the PDF invoices.

The cash receipt templates here on InvoicingTemplate.com calculates the line total of each item being sold by using the formula: Weight * Rate + Marking Charge.

While c4051 is a sample of adding custom field to the "InvBdy" table, the steps of adding custom field to "InvBdy" are similar to that too.
