HOW TO USE THE TEMPLATE
- Enter each invoice in the Invoice table beginning from row 15. (If you are new to Excel Tables, please read this article on data entry)
- Enter Invoice Number, Customer, Invoice Date, Due Date and Invoice Amount
- When Customer makes payment, enter it in Paid Amount column.
- Green colored columns have formulas. Do not edit.
Outstanding Amount: This is calculated as Invoice Amount – Paid Amount
Status: There are five possible values for Status.
- ‘ERROR”, when at least one of the fields Invoice Amount, Invoice Date, Due Date is left blank. Also, when Due Date < Invoice Date.
- PAID IN FULL: Outstanding Amount is 0
- CURRENT: If Outstanding Amount >0 and Due Date > Today (not due yet)
- DUE TODAY: If Outstanding Amount > 0 and Due Date = Today
- PAST DUE: If Outstanding Amount is 0 and Due Date = Today
- OVERPAID: If Outstanding Amount < 0 (i.e., Paid Amount is > Invoice Amount)
Note: Error rows are not used in calculation of metrics.
Rows with errors will be highlighted with a red border for your assistance.
Past Due Age: If the Status is ‘Past Due’, then this represents the aging bucket (1 – 30 Days, 31 – 60 Days, 61 – 90 Days, 91+ Days). Otherwise, it will be blank.
Selected: This will display 1 if the record (or row) is not filtered by the slicers.
The top of the Invoices sheet will present the summary in a dashboard as shown below. This will update instantly as you add more invoices to the table.
Let’s break it down in 3 sections.
Number of current (Due Date is in the future) invoices will be shown along with outstanding amount due.
Past Due Invoices:
Number of Past due (Due Date is in the Past ) invoices will be shown along with outstanding amount due. Accounts Receivable (A/R) aging breakdown is also provided.
Payments that are expected in the next 7 days (including today) and next 30 days (including today) will be displayed.
These metrics can be easily filtered using the 3 Slicers provided.
The invoice table will be filtered as well. One can use this feature to easily target selective invoices. For example, click on Status = Past Due, to see only invoices that are past due.

How to sorting invoices by Due Dates?
It’s easy to use the default sorting capabilities within Excel. For example, right click on the due dates column and choose Sort option.
You can use sorting on any of the fields.
How to track partial payments from customers?
Sometimes your customer may make an invoice payment in installments. For example, a customer pays $300 invoice in 2 payments $100 and $200. Or a customer makes a payment for two invoices together. Please watch this video tutorial below that explains how to address these scenarios.
How to calculate Due Dates automatically?
By default the template allows manual entry of due dates. If, in your small business, there is a standard term used such as Net 30 or Net 45, then we can automate this calculation. To create Due Date always as (Invoice Date + 30), just type =[@[INVOICE DATE]]+30 in cell D15.
