Hey with Interchange anything is possible!

Quoting Tim Nelson <nelson.tim@worldnet.att.net>:

It would be far easier to just add the product twice. In one case it is sold by 
the foot in one case it is sold by the unit.

Possible. Not a walk in the oark, but totally do-able!

Why don't you just use one account, but each job is on a different invoice? Then 
nothing needs to be done for this one.
