Allow unit cost to be recalculated in PO details entry.

In PO detail entry, user enters an item and a quantity. The cost is pulled in from wherever it is supposed to pull in from.  The extended cost is calculated (quantity * unit cost).  The user overrides the extended cost to a different number to match the extended cost given by the vendor.  Other software will recalculate the unit cost based on the new extended cost (new unit cost = new extended cost / quantity).  Acumatica should treat the new unit cost as if the user keyed in a different price.

    To be clear, Acumatica completely ignores the keyed-in extended cost, and continues to use the default unit cost for *everything*. Why does it allow the user to change the extended cost if it's not going to do anything with it? This makes no sense.

    re: why is extended cost editable

    Extended cost is used if you want to include non-stock items (something without a quantity) on a purchase order. (i'm not agreeing or disagreeing with the suggestion).
