Agreed. I described this before, as taking what rows are in the
database, and based on that, creating new rows with the $ values in the
reverse sense.

I suggest that the user will need to make that decision, as an invoice
might be printed off, checked visually, found to be completely wrong or
unneeded, or no longer billable, and thrown in the bin. Now all he needs
to do is tell the system 'reverse that invoice, return/check back in any
parts checked out against it'.

Shouldn't the system to able compare the price of the goods as sold,
compare that to the price last sold and also the current price maybe,
and if there are any differences, give the user the option to choose,
either at the time or via a preset preference.
