Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Third Party Logistics work center. 
  2. Navigate to the Outbound Delivery View. 
  3. Search and select the relevant outbound delivery. 
  4. Choose the Edit button. 

You see that the relevant extension field is non-editable. You have not set the field as read-only while creating it.


  • The field is flagged as a calculated field.
  • Since there is calculations involved, the value will be updated via the formula maintained and not be available for manually updating value.


The extension field for which calculations are maintained will be read-only even if you have not set the flag Read Only for the field while creating it.
