Thanks for the explanation. If I understand what you are telling me here,
then what I am looking for does not actually exits in one place as one file.
The reason for my search: My client receives an order by Email, but has to
re-key it for his accounting program, which is not Quick Books, Peachtree,
or any of the more well-known accounting packages. However, it is one of
the most powerful accounting programs available for companies his size,
created for companies with an average of 200 employees.
The company accountant told my client that if my client could download the
order information from Interchange (the same info that is sent with the
Email confirmation) in a comma delimited file, the accountant could create a
method for importing the order information directly into the accounting
program, thereby eliminating my client's need to re-key the order from the
Email into the Accounting Software.
As it seems from all the helpful suggestions I've gotten here, the goal of
importing from Interchange into the accounting software via an comma
delimited file exported from Interchange may not be possible. In which case
I will seek other solutions.
Many thanks for the guidance,
