Header lists main terms and conditions related to the sales invoice that will be used in the heading of its printed copy and further in its collection process.

In majority of the cases main (and the only) field needed to create a new sales invoice document is the Business Partner field. All other fields will be pre-filled automatically based on the selected Business Partner, logged in User preferences and other system default parameters.

There are 3 ways of entering lines into the sales invoice, two from the invoice header and the last one from the Lines tab:

These options can be used several times to group several orders and / or shipments in one invoice. This is a most common approach.
