3061946 - Why is Unit of measure in Supplier invoice is different from that of Purchase order


For example While entering time in time sheet  you enter with UOM hours  also in  the project the UOM is hours, but  in Purchase order and in Material master data, the UOM is Wdays.

However you expect system to pick the UOM in Invoice from the Purchase order where UOM is Unit of measure.

This is  expected behaviour in any Purchase order and Supplier invoice that has goods receipt created (time recording will generate auto GSR)with different UOM.

 Of course if no Goods receipt exists and if you create invoice then the UOM in Invoice will be same as Purchase order.


Wrong UOM, wrong Unit of measure. , KBA , AP-SIP-SIV , Supplier Invoice , Problem
