Some commodity codes are linked to a supplementary unit of measure because the intrastat intra communitarian movements (set up with OVE1) have to be reported in a different unit of measure than the base unit of measure.
When setting up a material master, the system will ask for the relationship to the base unit of measure when we try to use a commodity code that is linked to a supplementary unit of measure.
When we try to use these commodity codes when placing a PO for a free form text item (without material code) this screen no longer pops up.
I believe the system used to do this. Can you have a look why it is no longer doing this?
