Job Invoice Sample (Taxable Column) is the second sample on customizing the original Job Invoice Sample. With this sample template, we moved the Taxable checkbox column into the printable invoice form.

The printable area, or print area, is the area with white background on the center of the Job Invoice Sample (Taxable Column) spreadsheet. By default Microsoft Excel prints the entire worksheet when you issue the print command, but if the worksheet has a print area defined, such as what we do for Job Invoice Sample (Taxable Column), only the print area will print. You can add cells to expand the print area as needed, and you can clear the print area to print the entire worksheet again. If you need to recreate the print area definition, here are what to do: On the "Invoice" worksheet of the Job Invoice Sample (Taxable Column), select the cells that you want to define as the print area; On the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click Print Area, and then click Set Print Area.

To design this invoice form layout based on its original version, we first unprotect the Invoice spreadsheet, display grid lines and row headings and column headings, switch to design mode. And then, we unmerge the "Part No." column (which comprises 4 Excel raw columns), move all the "Taxable" checkboxes to Excel column L. On each item line, merge the first 3 cells on column I, J and K to create the new "Part No." cell. Finally, replace the original label "Part No." with the new text "# / Taxable" to indicate the purpose of the taxable checkboxes. The following section describe the process in detail.

The protection of the "Invoice" worksheet in Job Invoice Sample (Taxable Column) prevents accidental modifications to layouts and formulas. If you have Uniform Invoice Software installed, it could even display a warning message when you close a template without protecting the worksheet. However for the purpose of this sample, we should firstly unprotect the worksheet in Job Invoice Sample (Taxable Column).

  1. Click and activate the worksheet you want to display gridlines and row/column headers for.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the View tab.
  3. Under Window options, check the Gridlines and Row & Column Headers check boxes.

After your customization, go back to the Tools menu, Options, View tab. Under Window options, REMOVE the checks you previously placed by the two check boxes to hide gridlines and row/column headers. This will restore the appearance of your template.

To show/hide gridlines and row/column headers in Excel 2007, Excel 2010 and Excel 2013:

Our invoicing software is able to turn a simple spreadsheet into a powerful invoicing system, with the ability to manage customers, products, bills and payments, it also includes various tools that could help you configure the layout of your form, such as the number of taxes and tax names and rates. If you don't have our invoicing program installed, here are how you can switch to design mode manually.

Merge and Center works by merging the selected cells into one and then centering the data in the new combined cell. While design a template layout like Job Invoice Sample (Taxable Column), Merge and Center could be a handy tool if used properly. One thing to note, however, since Uniform Invoice Software (UIS) relies on cell names (or field names) to create the relationship between the Excel form cells and the database fields, you should make sure the cell that contains a field name is the first one in the group of cells that are to be merged. This way, UIS will work with the merged cell by reading from or writing to the named cell.

Once Job Invoice Sample (Taxable Column) is unprotected and switched into design mode, you can now move the controls to the new location you like. To do this, click to select a control, or push the CTRL on your keyboard and then select all the controls you want to move using mouse. Then, drag (one of) the select controls to move them to the new location.

Note that if you use the Uniform Invoice Software and need to show the control on an extracted worksheet, then the control should be named with an "oknWidget_" prefix. For example, if you move the Taxable checkboxes into the printable form, then the checkboxes should be named with "oknWidget_" prefix, such as oknWidget_taxtable1, oknWidget_taxable2, oknWidget_taxable3...

Once you moved in the taxable boxes, you may also like to include them on the printed or extracted invoice copy. To do this, name all the checkboxes with "oknWidget_" prefix.

Naming a control or an image is easy in Microsoft Excel. First make sure your template Job Invoice Sample (Taxable Column) is in design mode. Right-click the control or image you want to assign it a name, choose Properties. On the Properties box, enter the name into the "name" field and press enter. Note that if you have several controls that you want to assign different names, you can do so by entering the name and then clicking to choose another control without closing the Properties window.

Now you get the idea about how to create this Job Invoice Sample (Taxable Column) from the original Job Invoice Sample. If you need to charge two taxes on the invoicing items, you can either use the Setup dialog box in Uniform Invoice Software, or download the pre-configured one at Job Invoice Sample (2 Taxes).
