Where to enter new 0UNIT value


I need to load my key figure with the unit of measure diferent from provided by SAP in 0UNIT attribute, so I want to enter some new values in 0UNIT.

How to do this? (I'm sorry if you will find this question primitive, but I stuck with it).

Thank you!

    Hi Denis and welcome on board!

    Usually it's better to do this enhancement in source system side, but if you want to add something in BW, you have to do directly on system tables:









    So, I don't think this doc is useful for you (this is valid only at reporting level...), but... to report data in alternate units of measure

    Hope it helps!

    • Hi Denis,

      THERE IS a way to include new units into the system. Roberto meant that you can enhance the source system. It means that using tcode SPRO - click ‘SAP reference IMG’. Then go to tree node SAP Netwear – General settings – Check units of measurement (or directly execute CUNI t-code) - and you arrive to units of measurement maintenance screen, where you can create new units. You can do it in BW.

      But it is also possible in the source system, especially if it is R/3 system. In this case you enhance the source system and using in BW tcode RSA1 - source systems area - right click - transfer global settings you can bring these units into BW.

      And Roberto meant that editing your message 'as a question' you could reward helpful answers. It's the way to say thanks in SDN.

      Best regards,
