What is you default expire set to in the Emerald Admin? My guess is
that its set to five, which tells Emerald to take five days off the
intial prorate. Therefore, it only bills for the period
which is your two days. You probably want to set the default expire
to 0.

To produce the invoice you either need to run a batch from the
batch window, or use the invoice next term option on the MBR
