Output buffering will do it.

Also I am not sure but did you try retrieving content with fopen() ?

Something like

$file = 'invoicetable_bottom.php';


worth trying. Easier than output buffering

The simplest way (actually the single way I know :) ) would be to
capture the output using output buffering functions, something like this:

// start output buffering

// include the file that generates the HTML (or whatever content)
include "....";

// get output buffer content

// clean output buffer and stop buffering

// the content generated in the included file is now in $output variable
// use it as you consider fit
