It would appear he was posting two invoices, both of which were emailed,

This left him with invoices numbered

He probably should have left it at 1297.
Now, I have questions :
b) can the invoice number be changed to match the one previously mailed out?
To do it within the software, would require reposting it and either
deleting or reversing the original (1299). The consequences of those
depend on the type of invoice (I.E. whether it included parts in
inventory). It may be easier to just send the client a corrected invoice
c) does anybody have any idea why such a thing would happen?
He forgot to click post? That's the most obvious and likely answer.
Alternatively, maybe the web connection was lost at the moment it tried to
post, although that should have resulted in a visible error, or the
invoice remaining on screen.
