Add weight of item to grid in Purchase orders and sum that weight in header

It would be very helpful to show the running/accumulated weight of a purchase order while you're creating the purchase order.  This is especially helpful if you're ordering to a pallet or container.  This could be accomplished by adding the stock item weight field to the grid and then adding a 'weight total' in the header.

    Potential Workaround: utilize Create Purchase Orders screen

    - Benefits: this screen accumulates the weight and volume from multiple requests at top of screen

    - Potential Issues: (1) for inventory items to appear on this screen, you must prepare replenishment or mark the item for PO on a sales order - so a one step PO process will require two steps (prepare replenishment > create purchase order), (2) the weight on each line item cannot be edited, so the weight of all items must be established on the stock item.
