That is possible indeed. I haven't tried but I seem to recall job 
information takes precendence over customer information. Have you tried 
erasing the job information ?

Also note that to change the customer you need to go click the "Edit 
Invoice" button rather than the "Edit" button next to the customer name. 
The "Edit" button next to the customer name will open a window to change 
the customer itself (like change its adress or something like that), 
while via the "Edit Invoice" button on the tool bar, you can choose 
which customer the invoice is for.

Hope that helps,
