Detail

Simple 2-Column Service Bill Sample was originally published on office-kit.com with the ID# of c2-003. The main features of this Excel invoicing templates are: 2 columns, no shipping address section, no taxes (configurable), and the summary section moved to the top of the invoicing form.

If you browse our Excel invoicing and billing template galleries here on InvoicingTemplate.com, you may noticed most templates has the summary section put below the detail section - this is a usual design. With this template design, we moved the shipping address section out of the printable area, and blank area left is filled with the summary information.

The printable area, or print area, is the area with white background on the center of the Simple 2-Column Service Bill Sample 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 Simple 2-Column Service Bill Sample, 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 Simple 2-Column Service Bill Sample, 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.

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 Simple 2-Column Service Bill Sample 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 Simple 2-Column Service Bill Sample 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 Simple 2-Column Service Bill Sample 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.
