When entering a Purchase Order, the Unit of Measure on the purchase order line is not matching the Unit of Measure that is on the shipment.


Replication Steps:
1. Enter purchase order header information - change ship to V1
2. Enter the item - quantity - price - need by. Save shipments and distributions build properly
 - UOM is Each
3. Now, click in UOM - change it to Bag
 - Click Shipments button - but do nothing (can see form shows bag at shipment level) close shipments form - no action taken
4. Cursor is now in the Purchase Order Lines
   - click up top in header on a field using the mouse - Example: ship to field at header level
5. Next, click back down in UOM field on the line - again change it to Book
  - Up to this point no save has been done since changing the UOM to Bag in step 3
6. Use keys -  Ctrl + S to save

The Purchase Order now has a mis-match UOM on the line and shipment.
