Adagio Tip Of The Month: Multiple Items on Invoice Specifications

Apr 14, 2022

Question: I have a very basic invoice specification file and I have 6 invoice items to add to the invoice. However I can’t seem to get the invoice to display more than 5 of the 6 items, no matter how I shift things around on the spec. There is more than enough room on the page, and I’d rather not have the lines all squished together. What is wrong with my spec that’s preventing all of the items from displaying?

Answer: In general with invoice specifications, the number of details that print on a form will depend on the heights of the header, detail and footer sections. Subtract the height of the header and footer sections from the total page height to get the remaining amount reserved for details. Then divide this remaining amount by the height of the detail section to get the approximate maximum number of details per page.

There is nowhere in Adagio Invoices specs (or any other spec form type except AP check advices) to set a maximum number of details per page. So the solution has to do with section heights.

If you can only get 5 or so details on a single page, this likely means that either your header or footer sections are quite large, or similarly the height of the detail section is quite large. You would need to determine how to organize the information so that the section heights can be made smaller, in order to fit more details on the page.

If you feel there is more than enough room on the page to accommodate details, then perhaps start with the detail sections and respective heights on the spec. This may require some assistance from your Adagio consultant.
