A receipt is made in Excel with the use of a template in most cases. A template is available from Microsoft's website that provides all the information necessary for a receipt.
When a person wants to make a receipt in Excel, the easiest way to do so is to use a simple sales receipt template. The template can be downloaded and used in Excel, so no knowledge of the program is needed to set up the receipt.
After the template is downloaded, it can be loaded into the program. The newly loaded template has areas for information such as a company logo, the date, the address of the client or customer and an area for the address of the person's company. Information such as the payment method and check number can also be recorded.
The person using this template can also insert quantities, costs, descriptions and totals. A discount may also be applied. The template comes with the formulas already in place, so they do not need to be manually inserted.
To insert the information, a person simply needs to click on the box in the column he or she is working on. Then, he should type in the numbers or information needed, and the formulas will add or subtract the cost as needed.
