The expense template allows you to define a description and price of a regularly used expense item. Here is an example on how to enter an expense item using the template.
1) Create an expense category called fuel
2) Create an expense template called "Fuel for Truck #1"
3) Create an expense history item, click the "find" button, select "Fuel for Truck #1" from the drop-down box. Specify the date and the amount.
Then you can run an expense report for a date range and see subtotals for each category.
