Invoice Component

Properties   Methods   Events   Configuration Settings   Errors  

An Invoice indicates that a CUSTOMER owes money to the QuickBooks company. An Invoice is the opposite of a CREDITMEMO .

Syntax

DPayments.DAccountingSDK.Invoice

Remarks

The Invoice component represents an invoice sent to a Customer. When an invoice is added, the total amount is automatically entered into the Accounts Receivable register.

An Invoice should only be used if the Customer does not make payment at the time of the sale. If payment is made at the time of sale, the transaction should be recorded as a SalesReceipt instead.

Required Fields (Add): Customer*, Items

Supported Methods: Add, Get (Id), Cancel, Delete

Example

Invoice1.CustomerName = "John Q. Customer"             '*
Invoice1.TransactionDate = "1/17/03"
Invoice1.LineItems.Add(New InvoiceItem())
Invoice1.LineItems(0).ItemName = "Our Company's Product"         '*
Invoice1.LineItems(0).Amount = "140.00"
Invoice1.ShipDate = "1/20/03"
Invoice1.Add()

'*: Item must already exist in QuickBooks.

The total of an Invoice is the total of its item lines. There is no total amount property; when the component represents an invoice returned from QuickBooks, the total amount is divided between AppliedAmount and BalanceRemaining.

The component supports a variety of other operations as well. The component's Get, Cancel, and Delete methods may be used to retrieve, cancel, and delete Invoices, respectively. The ObjSearch Component may be used to search for Invoices in the QuickBooks database.
