    You can get a pad of invoices at walmart or buy a program like I use, PROVENTURE. It keeps track of all the invoices, customer info. etc. I like it and it was real cheap.<p>Homer

    I use Quick Books too. Takes a little bit to learn, but so will anything else you use.&lt;p&gt;John

    I use software by &quot;My Software&quot;, Deluxe Invoices & Estimates. It was about $40 or $50 and is simple to use.

    for residential cust. I use invoice books from office max or walmart, etc. they are carbonless & 2 part; top goes to cust. & you keep the yellow in the book for records.<br>For commercial acct.s, they are billed monthly & I use Microsoft works on windows 98 (or 95). I use the business management section,then statement template, then pick monthly statement, & I customize it as needed.<br>Then, after you print it out & save it in files, you can bring it up again next month, change the dates for the current billing, & save it as that month's invoice. It already comes with windows & works great. No need to re-type everything each month :)<p>----------<br>Smitty ô¿ô<p>

    As I said in the other post on this, I use Excel, it works great. Once you get all your customers in there, save it as a blank billing and just copy the blank sheet for each month. I put my company info in the Header, so it prints it on each customer billing. It adds it all up for the month for each customer and the total for all the customers, weekly and monthly. I have used a spreadsheet for billing since Commodore 64 days for other businesses too.<p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.townserver.com/elm/&quot;&gt;Eric@ELM&lt;/a&gt;<br>

    I do the same as Eric. I use the Microsoft Excel invoice template. I just modified it to fit my needs. I also modified this sheet to create proposal forms. Excel is a pretty powerful tool.<p><p>----------<br>Jeff<br>
