Exercise 13: Creating an Invoice for a Customer (invoice.sty) using CSV Files (Solution)

This is a solution to the CSV part of Exercise 13. I've used the letter class file for my solution and used an empty \opening{} to ensure the recipient's address is displayed.

You need the sample files people.csv, booklist.csv, country-codes.csv, ordergroups.csv and orders.csv.

\documentclass[12pt]{letter}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{textcomp}

\usepackage[a4paper]{geometry}
\usepackage[british]{babel}

\usepackage{datatool}

\usepackage{invoice}

\DTLloaddb{orders}{orders.csv}
\DTLloaddb{ordergroups}{ordergroups.csv}
\DTLloaddb{books}{booklist.csv}
\DTLloaddb{countries}{country-codes.csv}
\DTLloaddb{people}{people.csv}
