    Just adding some information, as far as I know, if you set a valid purchase price, it will also update automatically.
    Hope this helps as well.

    The Direct Unit Cost Excl. Tax field on the purchase order lines is populated with the Last Direct Cost field on the item card. Probably this field is empty for your items.
    Also, when you post a purchase document, the system then updates the Last Direct Cost field on the Item Card with that cost from the document, so this field is constantly updated.
