[Solved] An "invoice" sample

Postby johne53 » Mon Nov 06, 2017 2:23 pm

I'm using OpenOffice 4 (mostly the word processor). Last week I did some work for a company who've now asked me to submit an invoice to them!!

I figured there might be some kind of invoice template (or sample) that I could use as a starting point. But when I looked under Templates I found a few business card samples but it was mostly empty. Does anyone know if there's anything downloadable? And if so, how would I go about getting it?

Try this search
https://templates.openoffice.org/en/search?query=invoice

Double click on the template of choice to download it, then double click on the downloaded file to install the template.

Many thanks for the quick reply. The downloaded file was a zip file and I tried to unzip the contents to "C:\Program Files\OpenOffice 4\share\samples". However, Windows wouldn't let me access that folder Whreabouts do I need to unzip it to?

Ah! Internet Explorer strikes again! IE often silently renames to their generic type. Outside of OO rename the file to .ott , then double click it and OO will install the template.

Gosh, that's really surprised me! I've used Internet Explorer for years and never knew it to do that (although I've often seen this kind of thing with Apple's Safari).

Anyway, your suggestion worked - so thanks again...
