Lanman Invoice Template is created for oil and gas exploration / development companies. The sample form is designed specially for this type of business and is capable to detail landman name, per diem, mileage, meals etc.
This invoice template is original designed by our colleague, the office-kit.com team, as a sample template to demonstrate how user-defined fields work. Now Excel Invoice Manager got its new name, Uniform Invoice Software (partially, to reflect our company name, Uniform Software Ltd), but we at InvoicingTemplates.com think this is still a good sample on how to use user-defined fields and how to customize the form layout to meet your special business requirements.
According to Wikipedia , In the United States and Canada, a landman or "petroleum landman" is an individual who performs various services for oil and gas exploration companies. According to the website of the American Association of Professional Landmen (AAPL), these services include: negotiating for the acquisition or divestiture of mineral rights; negotiating business agreements that provide for the exploration for and/or development of minerals; determining ownership in minerals through the research of public and private records; reviewing the status of title, curing title defects and otherwise reducing title risk associated with ownership in minerals; managing rights and/or obligations derived from ownership of interests in minerals; and unitizing or pooling of interests in minerals.
Since this is a template created for landmen services, it includes not only the fields that could be found on a general invoice, such as your own company information, logo, and those common fields, such as invoicing number, invoicing date, but also added a Project section, which includes 3 fields that are Name, Time Period and a Description. A "Message" section is also added above the invoice body section for you to enter any comment regarding this invoice. If you use the Uniform Invoice Software (download and try it) version, but not the freeware edition of this Landman Invoice Template, you probably noticed that these are all user-defined fields that are not included in the default database structure of Uniform Invoice Software (formerly named Excel Invoice Manager). The support for user-defined fields, or sometimes called custom fields, is a great feature offered by Uniform Invoice Software, which combined with Excel formula, could create many interesting features without modifying a line of code of Uniform Invoice Software itself.
The invoice body part includes 11 columns for you to enumerate the expense in detail -- for a comparison, the default invoice template shipped with Uniform Invoice Software setup program has only 5 columns within the printable area. The "Total" column calculates the total amount of expense for each landman. The two columns that are outside the printable area, are Rate and Landman #, that are similar to Unit Price and Product # in the general sales invoice template. If you have Uniform Invoice Software installed, you can just type in the landman # to retrieve other landman information from database. This feature is called in-cell lookup in Uniform Invoice Software, and can be disabled or enabled on the In-Cell Lookup tab of the Settings window.
Since this invoice template has 11 columns, it is designed to be printable on standard A4 paper with paper orientation set to landscape. This option can be set on the Page Setup dialog box - however, modifying paper size or orientation options usually means that you should resize the cells to make it looks nice.
