Thank you for your reply

Much of your words don't mean much at all at this point, but Iím sure they will at some point in the future.

My knowledge of PDF::API2 at this moment is restricted to creating a one page PDF document with just one centralised line of text, that's the full extent of my knowledge right now

My assumption is that my PDF document will be a simple one right now. Billing address aligned left, my details aligned right but opposite each other. An invoice number and date. Details about the service or repair carried out. A list of parts / materials used and costs involved. A total, a box where i can add cautionary notes, comments and observations the customer should be aware of etc, in other words a box where additional text can be added at the bottom. An image / logo perhaps, a clickable link to visit my website.

I don't want make things unnecessarily complex at this early stage.

I receive many an automatically created PDF receipt on a daily basis from my suppliers, i suppose i should analyse them to see what's achievable and work on that, perhaps use LibreOffice and M$ office to create something as a goal to aim for! Then for now explore PDF::API2 to see what i can achieve.

Meanwhile if anybody else can offer a little advice that would be good too, Iím sure Iíll be back with Oooodles of questions and problems to resolve in the near future.
