]po[ Financial Document Item

Financial Document Items (formally called "Invoices Items" or "Invoice Lines") represent individual lines of a financial document, containing a description of each item, a quantity, a unit of measure and a price.

Technically, the Financial Document Item is not an object (a sub-type of acs_object, because its im_invoice_items.item_id primary key field does not reference acs_objects. So in fact, the Financial Document Item just consists of a single table called "im_invoice_items".
