How I created this Template
I created a Table database, added of you more columns and renamed the existing one, one column logs the date, the other column that’s he select the quantity. The third column is formula based, it multiplies the rate of the product with quantity to give you the money amount.
Two columns are Hidden, the rate column and Litre column. Since Quantity column is alphanumeric, Litre column strips alphabet so that it can be multiply by Rate column to give amount.
Amount is calculated as SUM formula to give you total amount spend or bill due.
