​Invoice ​Limitations

  • The sort and sync functions of the invoice are inoperable in the versions of Excel 2003 and earlier.
  • These earlier versions are not recommended, as they are no longer supported by Microsoft and pose a security risk. (Microsoft Office 365 can be obtained for $99/year for 5-user version.)
  • Using Excel 2003 and earlier versions still allow the other functionality to be utilized, and can still be used to enter and submit payment requests.
  • Remember that submitting your invoice using the standardized Excel invoice, and submitting it as an Excel file will be critical in helping us expedite your payments.​
