This sample shows the detailed steps required when adding new lines to an existing template, by using the default invoice template shipped with Invoice Manager for Excel (namely Uniform Invoice Software) as the starting point.
The standard invoice template shipped with Invoice Manager for Excel (namely Uniform Invoice Software) has 12 lines (or 12 rows) on the detailed section. But the number of lines on the detail section isn't necessary to be 12.
For example, Invoice Template with Long Product Description includes only 6 lines, which enables you to enter long text into the "Description" field. On multiple-page invoice templates, you can find samples that has 36 lines (two-page), 60 lines (three-page), 84 lines (four-page).
Reducing the number of lines could be archived by hiding some bottom lines of an existing invoice design, but increase the number of lines is not as easy as reducing lines.
First, all cells that need to be saved to database must be correctly named, including those put into hidden columns. Secondly, you have to modify the Excel formulas that calculate totals and taxes. Finally, if you find many lines, you have to adjust the page breaks if the template should be printed using multiple pages.
In the following step by step tutorial, we'll add only one new line. So it does not involve the adjustment of page layout and printing. Please refer to printable invoice templates for more samples on this topic.
This step by step tutorial is based on Windows 10 and Excel 2016.
Please refer to How to name an Excel cell / range.
The Excel cell names map to database file name. So for example in the name "oknProductID_13", "okn" is the prefix that must be added to all names that indicate cells saved to / loaded from database; "ProductID" is the database field name in the "Invoice Body" database table; "13" is line number.
On the formula bar click to edit the formula, change the numbers from "12" to 13", and then press keyboard key CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER to create the array formula. The result should look like this:
Since we add only one new line to the template, it is still printable one a single A4 or letter paper. In practical situations you may want to add several lines. In this case, you may need to click Excel menu "File" and then "Print" to verify how many pages needed to print the form.
Adding a new line is not as easy as hiding a line. Fortunately you can download ready-to-use templates at templates with multiple pages without going through all these steps.
