Sample Service Invoice Template: Using Handwriting Signature is a variant of Sample Sales Invoicing Sample: Using Handwriting Signature. It is the service edition of the original template.
The free template is able to create professional-looking bills for you without a hard learning curve, but the Invoice Manager for Excel version offers more advanced features. For example, with the freeware edition of the template you have to clear the invoice form manually to make it a blank invoice form in order to create a new invoice - that is, to delete all the existing field values, such as invoice date, invoice#, customer information etc. With the Invoice Manager for Excel edition, by clicking the "Clear & New" button once, all the fields are cleared and some fields are filled with default values. For example, the "Clear & New" command fill in the invoice date field with the today's date.
Speaking of dates, we have some off-topic words to talk about. Date values are not as easy as it sounds. Dates seem to cause people problems. Ask five people to enter a date into Excel and you'll get dates entered five different ways. We have created a little and handy utility to address this, an Excel date picker, called Pop-up Excel Calendar. The Excel Date Picker pops up a calendar whenever you click to move into a date cell - i.e. a cell that contains a date value, a date format, or underneath a cell that has the word "date" in it. If you are interesting in this please find more information at Pop-up Excel Calendar, Date Picker for Excel, and at Excel Date Picker, a Pop-up Excel Calendar for Excel. If you use dates frequently our Excel Date Picker could be a nice helper for you.
Now we return to the template. The detailed tutorial on how to add the signature image to the printable invoice form could be found on office-kit.com at Invoicing Sample - Using Handwriting Signature in Your Invoices. The result of this tutorial is a sales invoicing form that includes shipping fields in the printable invoice form. To create the service version, we move out all the shipping-related fields after unprotecting the sheet and switching it to design mode.
The difference between this template and the default template shipped with Invoice Manager for Excel is minor, but it provides a good example on using custom images on the printable invoice form.
