G'Day Phillip,

Actually this is very possible...

You can simply turn off the cc processing...

When the user logs on, have his corp. account number follow him around in a 
session variable.

Re-format the achive invoice file, to look how you want it to...

Then after an order is processed, call a system script to ftp/mail/scp to where 
you need it for your system to pick it up...
