Change Unit of Measure in AX2009

Posted on by 2,693

I need to change the default purchase unit of measure in Dynamics, but the field is disabled in the Default Order Settings form. Is there some change to this process from AX3.0?  Our buyer would like to purchase in 5x10SH instead of the SF that our inventory uses. An appropriate conversion is setup.

    Thanks!  That is the change I was looking for.  LJ

    Please try to change the purchase unit of measure in Item Details form > References tab > Purchase order group > Purchase unit.

    Once you modify the Purchasing UoM you should see the read only fields in Default Order Settings reflect the new values.
