We have reached the point where some customers prefer to receive e-invoices instead of hard copy invoices.

When using e-invoices, the process results in much less physical handling and processing, and will result in a lower cost of doing business.

We just don't seem to have a flag anywhere on the Customer record to allow the invoices to be "tagged" as an e-invoice vs a normal invoice.  This in turn would be used by the Invoice print programs to "skip" them.  The e-invoice program (using any one of many FTP techniques using EDI, iDoc's, etc.) would then create the appropriate record to be sent to the customer.

I was suprised to find no mechanism to turn on or offf the e-invoice process based on a Customer record.

Hello,
you can do it with condition technique for output billing documents. For hard copy billing document condition type (e.g. RD00) you must assign suitable access sequence for example sales_organization/customer/billing_type and then in condition record for output insert
that customers which needs hard copy invoices. Similiary you have to do it for electronic invoices.
Hope it helps,
