Daniel, Changing the name is easy. Look in the catalog>includes>languages>english.php file and you will see line 204, change the text from Fax Number to ABN Number.


As far as changing location on the line, in the create_account.php file you will have to move this:



<td class="main"><?php echo ENTRY_FAX_NUMBER; ?></td>

<td class="main"><?php echo tep_draw_input_field('fax') . ' ' . (tep_not_null(ENTRY_FAX_NUMBER_TEXT) ? '<span class="inputRequirement">' . ENTRY_FAX_NUMBER_TEXT . '</span>': ''); ?></td>



from line 462 to around line 372.


Do not try to change the input field names, just leave them as Fax. The language file you changed will display the text ABN Number as you entered it.
