    I have wasted about 2 hours looking online for a good monthly invoice I can use to bill customers each month. I have been sending a nice little note telling what we did and how much they owe. I am just getting too busy to mess with that every month. Does anyone use an invoice I can copy and use? I found one that is in adobe format, but I cannot edit it. Thanks for the help in advacne.

    I use Excel, but I haven't quite got the merging figured out, so it's still a pain to input names and everything manually, but it works for now and looks professional. :clapping:

    I have been struggling with this for months. Think I might up the cash for quick books or gopher or something. I might never figure out excel.

    I bought quick books now I'm back to using excel and word. It's what I'm most comfortable with nothing to do with quickbooks pro I just didn't have the time to learn it proper.

    I don't like that template I prefer the one in word that allows you to use a #10 windowed envelope that way you dont have to also print their address on the envelope.

    Excel is a place to keep the info. Then you use a invoice template in word and make a word merge. Basically when you print it, all the info from excel will be printed in the appropiate spaces that YOU picked on the invoice plus the rest of the invoce will be printed. In the end all your invoices are printed with all the info in the right spot.

    I need to use this to copy/paste to make sure dollar signs appear in the merge.

    If you have authentic Microsoft software as your operating sytem, you can download invoice templates of your choice direct from the Microsoft website. You can massage them anyway you want and add pictures and comments, etc.
