Use the Compose tab of the Detail Billing screen to change the appearance of the invoice that you send to your client. You can see how the invoice detail will appear on the invoice, change text formatting and alignment, add and remove rows of text, and rearrange blocks of text in the invoice as needed. See Compose toolbar for information on the toolbar buttons.

Note: Changes that you make to your custom invoice formats will not affect invoices that you have previously composed and saved. To have custom invoice format changes appear on an invoice that you have already composed, edit the invoice, click the Refresh Refresh button button in the Compose tab of the Detail Billing screen, compose the invoice again, and re-save the invoice before you print it.

You can also edit amounts on the Compose tab if the following conditions exist:

Note: The application will verify totals only for amounts that are entered in fields designated as Amount fields. These are fields that automatically fill with 0.00 when you add a new row and that accept only numbers. The application does not validate amounts that you enter in a free-form text row.
