RE:[sap-log-sd] UOM Conversion LB to KG and KG to LB

Reply from Dutch on Feb 29 at 6:22 PM
Hi Ian,
The general UoMs are plant- and sales-org independent, but the sales UoM is maintained on the sales org view of the material master. Perhaps there are discrepancies in the master data settings there, please check. But as the previous poster suggested the UoM can be entered on the order directly as well, and you can set the sales UoM as being non-changeable by means of the indicator VAVME on the material master sales org view.
Your scenario seems to indicate your shipping between continental Europe and the UK. Which brings to mind an old quote from Margaret Thatcher: "God created the Channel for a reason".
Good luck,

Subject: UOM Conversion LB to KG and KG to LB

Hi All,

I have a client who has two plants one for country A and other for country B and they also have country specific items/products aswell. The client is integrating a division in country B.

Currently the SAP system is set up (UOM) Weight as LB and Volume FT3 (cubic foot) however they would like system to convert the items from LB to KG and Volume from FT3 to M3 (cubic meter) and also vise versa KG to LB (M3 to FT3).

I also would like to know does UOM has anything to do with Sales Doc Type and are we able change the total weight & volume manually during the creation of a sales order?

The same sales order can contain both countries lines items, is it possible that system will do the convesion on line item bases currently it is converting as per plant number.

Thanks in advance experts.
