Assembly Orders/Units of measure

Posted on by 35


I'm having an issue with assembly orders. As soon as I enter a quantity for an item to assemble, it returns the following error


"The field unit of Measure Code of table Assembly Line contains a value (PCS) that cannot be found in the related table (Item Unit of Measure)"

From what I can see, all items have the item unit of measure set up correctly. 

Where do I find the table Assembly Line? Is this saying that an item in the assembly BOM does not have the unit of measure set correctly? Or is it to do with the item to be assembled?

    Thanks, there were 2 items in the BOM that had a base unit of measure, but nothing in the item unit of measure table

    What you probably have is Item records with values in their unit of measure fields, but not in the related table (Item Unit of Measure). Those items were probably imported without field validation. Open the Item Card for that Item, and navigate to the units of measure. You will see that although there is a value on the Item, the related 'Item Unit of Measure' table does not have an associated record. Create the record and try again.
