Giving discount on a percentage basis is a common practice in many businesses. This simple invoice template demonstrates how to add the fields / feature.
With c4051 Simple Invoice Template - Discount Amount Field, we learnt how to add a discount amount field, where the discount amount is subtracted directly from "Subtotal" by using Excel formulas. This new simple invoice template will be based on c4051 Simple Invoice Template - Discount Amount Field, and by adding a discount percentage field, you enter the discount percentage instead of discount amount, and then calculate the discount amount based on discount percentage by using Excel formula. This sample, just like other invoicing templates and forms available here on InvoicingTemplate.com, demonstrates how flexibility it could be by using Excel and Invoice Manager for Excel (namely Uniform Invoice Software) as your invoicing tool.
The implementation of c4051 Simple Invoice Template - Discount Amount Field adds the discount amount field on the bottom of the form at J35 and K35. In this new sample, we'll add percentage fields on the same row but before the discount amount fields, at G35 and H35.
Now let's look at the steps required to add the new Discount Percentage field.
Unlike the other pure Excel-based invoicing solutions, Invoice Manager for Excel (namely Uniform Invoice Software) stores data (customers, products, invoices and payments) in a backend database. So you need to back up the database before modifying its structure or definitions (like in this sample, we'll add the discount percentage field).
A locked cell is not manually editable / fillable when the worksheet is protected. So we have to clear the "Locked" property because on creating invoices we need to be able to fill in the percentage value.
Now go to the "Number" tab of the "Format Cells" dialog box. From the "Category" list choose "Percentage". Adjust the "Decimal Place" if you like. In this sample, we just keep the default value "2".
Click OK to close the "Format Cells" dialog box.
We've already added proper formulas for both tax cells that consider the discount on tax calculations. So in this sample we won't customize the tax formulas again.
Note that the field name ("DiscountPercentage") must match the cell name defined on the "Invoice" spreadsheet. Invoice Manager for Excel (namely Uniform Invoice Software) determines which database field to store each cell value by using names. It is the names (Excel cell name and database field name) creates the relationship between an Excel cell and database field.
Also note since we allow 2 digits after the decimal place on the "oknDiscountPercentage" field, the "Scale" of this custom field must be 4 or greater in order to store the value completely.
Is your business giving discounts by percentage? The sample invoice template created with this tutorial might be helpful. With this tutorial, we also learnt how to using custom fields (also called user-defined fields) with Invoice Manager for Excel (namely Uniform Invoice Software).
