    I'm experimenting with several (downloaded) invoice templates in Word 2000, in an attempt to find one that does everything I want. I have one that's pretty close, but I'm having difficulty making the last column of the itemized invoice update itself.. (where the formula is for totaling hours worked times hourly labor rate). I have to highlight each individual cell and right click and tell it to "Update". I can't even highlight an entire range of cells and do them all at once. Very time consuming. Seems there should be a global operation to tell the entire invoice to "Update". Anyone have any ideas? For that matter, I'm open to suggestions to other templates that may work for me. I'm doing this for my aircraft maintenance shop, so is very similar to an automotive shop order or repair invoice.

    I started off using Word templates, but went to using Excel, as Word was just not well suited.

    The ease of formula updating in Excel, and the ability to customise the printed form to look just as I need is fine.

    Kiwiguy,
    I found a really nice Excel template that I've modified to do pretty much exactly what I desire, Thanks for the suggestion. Don't know why that never occured to me.. I do more in Excel than Word anyway.
