- Select Print By to determine the print order, it will default to the last used selection.
- Customer From and To or Print Class From and To can be used to filter for certain groups, leave at default settings to print all bills.

For Chart style bills, use the Offset box to move the starting point of the bars on the graph forward or back by month. For example: bills dated 12/20/2019 and offset of "-1" will make the current consumption bar show up as November in the graph. No entry or "0" will use the Bill Date month. This is used if the consumption being billed is not the current month.
