Invoice Showing All Associated Skus when Product has Custom Options

As you may know, Magento concatenates SKU numbers when you add custom options to a product. The problem is, when using a product that isn’t necessarily a Base Product + certain options you have a problem where the Sku for the base product has been concatenated to the option instead of one or the other.

Example:

Element T Shirt -> SKU ET001
Size Small -> SKU ET001S
Green Color -> SKU ET001SG

When you (as the customer) make your selections on the product page, you choose an “element T shirt” > “size small” > “green in color”

The problem is that ALL invoice SKUs display as:

ET001-ET001S-ET001SG

I only want the ET001S or ET001SG Skus

This obviously will confuse a busy product picker tasked with shipping the product. Is there any way to override the “base sku” with the appropriate sku?

Sample : Cape Med Express

Did you come up with a solution for this? I’m guessing the solution is to override the admin area but maybe you found something easier?
