GP: Tying a Credit Card to More Than One G/L Account

Hi:

In the Microsoft Dynamics GP Credit Card Setup window, is there a way of tying a credit card to more than one G/L account?

An end user has three separate Cash accounts in the chart of accounts but does not want to create a separate Visa credit card for each account.  She wants the one Visa credit card - not three.

Thanks!

I can't see how this would be possible. That's like saying I have a shortcut to a website, but it's linked to 3 different websites at the same time.
How would GP know which one to use when?

What is the business need for this request? What are they trying to accomplish?

Hi Victoria:

There's an integrating third-party that requires a one to one relationship between its product's setup of a credit card and GP's setup.

Does the GP customer actually have 3 different Visa credit cards that relate to the 3 different GL cash accounts?

If there are 3 different GL cash accounts for 3 Visa cards, why would the user only want one Visa card in GP?  Or why does the user NOT want 3 Visa cards in GP?

Or if there is really only 1 Visa card, what are the 3 GL cash accounts?

That doesn't answer the question, unfortunately. What is the 3rd party software? What is the actual business reason for having 3 GL accounts and not 1? What are the transactions that will be entered using these credit cards and how/when is it determined which GL account needs to be used?

It's possible that there is a different way to address the issue, but to do that it's imperative to understand the entire picture.

Hi Victoria:

I'm afraid to mention the ISV in a public forum.  The client has three separate cash accounts recognizing three areas of her business.  These will be SOP invoices.  The credit card payment will reference the applicable cash account.
