UM

Enter a valid unit of measure for this invoice item. Initially defaults as follows:

  • If you specified a non-valid material (Job, Exp, Equip, and WO lines only), this field defaults as LS. May be overridden with any valid unit of measure. May be overridden, but must be a valid unit of measure for that material.

  • For Job, Inv, and Exp lines, if you specif a valid HQ Material, this field defaults the purchase unit of measure. You may override with any valid unit of measure.

    If overrides exist for the specified material/vendor in PO Vendor Materials (POVM), this field defaults the vendor material UM if it matches the HQMT Purchase UM; otherwise, defaults the lowest UM (in POVM) for the vendor/material group/material.

    Note: This field defaults from the value entered in the CT field when you select the Default JC Job Phase UM on job lines checkbox in AP Company Parameters.
  • For Equipment lines, if the selected material exists in EMEP (Equipment Parts) for the equipment, the UM will default from EMEP if it matches the HQMT Purchase UM; otherwise, default will be the HQMT Purchase UM.

    If you selected a vendor material that does not also exist in EMEP, defaults the vendor material UM if it matches the HQMT Purchase UM; otherwise, defaults the lowest UM (in POVM) for the vendor/material group/material.

    If material does not exist in EMEP or POVM, defaults the HQMT Purchase UM.

  • For Work Order lines, if the selected material exists in EMWP (Work Order Parts) for the work order, UM will default from EMWP, regardless of whether it matches the HQMT Purchase UM.

    If you select a material from EMEP (Equipment Parts) that does not also exist in EMWP for the work order, UM will default from EMEP if matches the HQMT Purchase UM; otherwise, default will be the HQMT Purchase UM.

    If you select a vendor material that does not also exist in EMWP and/or EMEP for the work order, defaults the vendor material UM if it matches the HQMT Purchase UM; otherwise, defaults the lowest UM (in POVM) for the vendor/material group/material.

    If the material does not exist in EMWP, EMEP, or POVM, defaults the HQMT Purchase UM
