How can I add a discount to the total of an invoice? I've been trying
to figure out how to do something like, if the invoice totals $500.00
- how can I give the total a 10% off discount?

Create a "subtotal" invoice item. Create a "discount" item (an
item with a negative "per item rate").

When creating the invoice, enter all the discountable items
first, enter the subtotal item after the last discountable item,
then enter the discount item right after the subtotal item.

Okay so I hope I understand correctly, my invoice should look like
this:
- Item A - $5
- Item B - $20
- Item C - $100
<subtotal item> (how is this entered?)
10% off whole order (Discount item)

Total should be: $112.50

Assuming you have created a new invoice item with the "Subtotal
of previous items" box checked, you enter that in your invoice
just as you would any other invoice "item".

Sounds right to me.

Thanks so much for clearing all this up - finally got it. I had to
dump Microsoft Money because it couldnt do simple invoice tasks like
this! Thanks a lot.
