Microsoft Dynamics 365 offers price locking on sales order products, which can cause users to experience difficulties when they attempt to update unit pricing. When this situation arises, it can be managed in two ways:

In other cases, “Pricing” might be available; however, an error message might still show up with the following details: “The product and the unit cannot be updated while the entity is locked.”
