SAP Business By Design

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center
  2. Create a new supplier invoice without purchase order
  3. Assign a purchasing contract item to the supplier invoice
  4. System throws UOM error on selecting Check action


When you assign a contract to a new supplier invoice without a purchase order and execute a check, a UoM error message is thrown because the unit of measurement in the supplier invoice is different from the UoM in the purchasing contract.


You must ensure that the purchasing contract item UoM is the same as the supplier invoice item UoM.


Please maintain UoM conversions in product master data under Product Portfolio work center.
