The .xlsx file extension tells me that you need to use The Microsoft Office Excel application not Wordpad. This looks like it's a spreadsheet not a text document. Most accounts receivable and payable documents are done is some sort of spreadsheet type application. If you don't have MS Office with Excel you can use a freeware replacement.

In addition to Budapest's excellent suggestions.

I have no experience with it, but heard many good things about Kingsoft Office as well:
