Detail

Sample Service Invoice Template: Fixed Items is a variant of Sample Sales Invoice Template: Fixed Items. It is the service edition of the original one.

The only difference between this customized template and the original invoice template is that there are no shipping fields in the service invoice template, whereas the sales invoice template has shipping fields defined near the "Bill To" section.

The difference between sales and service here on InvoicingTemplate.com is simple - if a template contains the "Ship To" section on the printable section, we call it sales invoice. If it does not contain the "Ship To" section, it is categorized as service invoice. If the form has a very special design in its layout, such as Tax bill for Printing Shop, which moves the "Ship To" section (titled with "Delivery To") to the body of the spreadsheet form, we add the template to both the sales and service category. Sample Service Invoice Template: Fixed Items adheres to this rule too.

This service edition is created by moving all the shipping fields out of the printable form.

Moving a cell or a group of cells is easy in Excel. First, you click to select the cell or drag your mouse to select all the cells you want to move. And then, drag the border of the selected area to move it to the new location where you want to place the cell or cells. The moving content will overwrite the content in the target location, so make sure the target range is empty (not used) in Sample Service Invoice Template: Fixed Items before doing the movement. And, if the target location contains merged cells, sometimes the movement fails. So it is also helpful to make sure the target location does not contain merged cell. If the target location Sample Service Invoice Template: Fixed Items is overlapping the original range and the original range contains merged cells, the movement could also fail because you cannot change part of merged cell - if this happens, you need to first move the cells to a temporal location in Sample Service Invoice Template: Fixed Items that are empty (i.e. not used), unmerge cells, and then move the cells from the temporal location to the desired location. If you need to unmerge a cell, first select it and then click the "Merge and Center" command on the Format toolbar in Excel 2003; or click the "Merge and Center" command on the Home ribbon tab in Excel 2007, 2010 and Excel 2013.

The two standalone fields, "Ship Date" and "Ship Via", are also moved out of the printable invoice form (Although "Shipping Cost" is left on the bottom of the form). The two adjacent fields, "Terms" and "Due Date", are expanded to fill in the space left by moving out the shipping fields. To do this, we first move "Terms" (both the label and field cell) two columns left, and move "Due Date" one column left, and then select the "Terms" label and its subsequent empty cell, and then click "Merge and Center" command on Excel ribbon.

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 Sample Service Invoice Template: Fixed Items, 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.

So with several easy steps we have the Sample Service Invoice Template: Fixed Items. As detailed at the sales edition Sample Sales Invoice Template: Fixed Items, fixed items could be very helpful for some businesses.

Like other form designs here on InvoicingTemplate.com, Service Template with Fixed Items is free (offered to you at a price of 0.00USD). It works on Windows XP and all newer versions of Windows, and Excel 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013 or 2016.
