Change order unit in PO when referenced with contract

Hi All,

I have scenario that a material has based UoM PC and maintain variable order unit in purchasing view of material master.

I created a purchase contract with order unit KG for my internal usage that I do not need to send to vendor. When i create a purchase order with reference to the purchase contract, I need to raise in UoM PC which is different from contract. However, standard SAP has greyed out the order unit field in the PO when it is referenced from contract.

So, is there anyway that we can do to allow user to edit the order unit field ? Or is there any way that i can create PO with different order unit when it is referenced with contract ?

Appreciate some idea from the experts.

    What hinders you to create the contract with the order unit that you need in your PO if the contract is anyway just for internal use?

    Hi Jurgen,

    I used the contract internally to do some tracking against the order unit ordered with supplier. Eg : I had make an agreement with supplier A that he will need 100 KG flour to make 10 pc cakes with ratio 1 cake = 10 KG flour. So, when i release a PO for cakes against the contract, i can know that i had used up how many KG of flour.

    Any other way to do this linkage of tracking ?

    • I am sorry but this information is even confuse me more, for a clearer picture a screenshot of the contract the and PO would be needed.

      I think it is better you start from the beginning, explain the business case and your requirement based on that business. With this information we may then be able to tell you how you could meet the requirement.

    Probably alternate option would be like you create contract and PO with alternate UOM. For tracking may have to develop custom report to track in SKU..
