2573755 - Wrong UoM Being Proposed When Posting Goods Receipts

Symptom

When you select Post Goods Receipt for a Purchase Order, you expect that the UoM proposed will be the one used in the Purchase Order. However system is proposing a different UoM.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Inbound Logistics work center.
  2. Select Purchase Orders view.
  3. Search for Purchase Order XXX.
  4. Select the Purchase Order XXX.
  5. Click Post Goods Receipt.


Notice that the UoM being used is not the maintained one in the Purchase Order XXX.

Cause

The system always proposes the UoM maintained under Logistics tab in the product master data starting from Logistics processing until Confirmations (including Warehouse Documents).

Resolution

You cannot change the UoM maintained under Logistics tab in the product master data. As a workaround, you can populate the Actual Quantity when posting goods receipts with the UoM you would prefer to use.
