The Editable Unit Cost is a check box that indicates (if selected) that the unit cost in the line can be edited. The state of the check box is defined by the system and can't be edited by the user.

The check box is always selected for lines that have been added on the Purchase Receipts (PO302000) form. The state of the check box for lines that have been copied from a purchase order is defined as follows:

  • If the purchase order line has retainage or inclusive taxes applied, the Editable Unit Cost check box is cleared in the corresponding purchase receipt line.
  • If the purchase order line doesn't have retainage or inclusive taxes applied, the Editable Unit Cost check box is selected in the corresponding purchase receipt line.

If your customer wants to update the Unit Cost on the Purchase Receipts screen, then you need to ensure that the PO line doesn’t have retainage applied, or the unit cost of the PO screen has to be exclusive of tax.
