User exits for changing fields

Although greyed out items usually can't be changed in sales orders, it is possible to manipulate user exits that can enable you to change certain fields.

Do you know if it is possible to change the configuration in order to be able change the 'sold to party' in a sales order when the sales order has been created from a PM notification? Presently, when the sales order is created from the notification, the 'sold to party' is greyed out for no change.
Typically the 'sold to party' cannot be changed on the sales order. But user exits are available that can enable you to change certain fields. This can be accomplished by using the an user exit in the PAI of the appropriate screen. You may need the help of an ABAP consultant, but generally speaking, you may need to do a loop at sceen.

if screenname = "<SOLD TO PARTY>" 
modify field "<SOLD TO PARTY>"
