Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing Workcenter.
  2. Go to View Invoice Documents.
  3. Show all invoice documents and choose the invoice document ABC (ABC represents invoice ID).
  4. Mark this invoice document ABC.
  5. Click on Follow-Up and new manual credit memo.
  6. Click edit and view all.
  7. Go to the Items Tab .

Here you can see that the Unit of Measure is not editable anymore.


If you want to change the Unit of Measure, create a new manual credit memo using the same details and enter the invoice ID ABC in the external reference field.


This is the expected system behaviour.
