    I am trying to use peachtree 7 for a water service company I started
    doing books for. They like to print meter readings on their invoices.
    Is there a way to make peachtree do this? Previous, Current, Units
    Used? I somehow don't think so, but I could be missing something.

    Other than as a note on the invoice, that is.... I know how to create

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Carla-I'm the secretary for a small water supply corp. Not sure of the size
    of yours, but there are specialty billing programs for what you are trying
    to do. PT or any other "canned" program won't do it. We use a specialty
    billing program, it prints on postcard size (savews on postage). For the
    accounting side, we use QuickBooks, which PT would work as well. If you are
    interested, I can get you the name of the one we use. It used to be TAABS,
    but I think it has changed. I also have a few links to other billing
    software that it available. HTH

  3. I've used the same approach as John, MS Access to enter the meter
    reading then calculate the fee then enter that into
    Peachtree. The difference is that I used DDE to punch the data into the
    Peachtree sales journal. A little easier to do, but both ways
    are valid solutions. The next thing I'm going to do is link the Access DB
    to a PDA thus reducing the in office entries.

    I had tried to use Peachtree Inventory but it just did not have the
    flexibility to calculate fees from meter readings (it was a dead end)

    Good luck
