    4. Item Unit of Measure (using Bill To Name field) must exist in the Item Unit of Measure table.

    When creating sales orders:

    1. The routine retrieves Sales Prices and Line Discount % from the configuration.

    2. The EDI Unit Prices and EDI Discount % are updated in two separate fields and the EDI Line Amount and Line Amount are compared. 

      1. If the values are different, EDI Price Discrepancy field on the Sales Line is checked. 

      2. Sales orders with No. of EDI Price Discrepancies greater than 0 must be reviewed before creating Whse. Shipments.
