Unit of Measure Conversion

Dear Experts,

We have a problem where for a material, the UoM conversion is maintained as 1000PAC = 335KG (in material master). The base UoM is KG. The MRP type is PD and externally procured material (F).

The schedule agreements are involved for procurement and while creating a schedule line with 100PAC as quantity, in MD04, it is displayed as 33.500,000. The expected value is 33,5 (thirty three and half Kilograms). So somehow it is getting multiplied 1000 times and displayed.

Can anyone throw some light on where possibly this could get deviated.

Thanks in advance,

    If you change the UoM manually in MD04 itself to PAC, what is the quantity of the schedule being shown?

    Kindly update.

    If it shows correct quantity in PAC, then maybe you have a different decimal notation maintained in your 'own data'.

    Go to SU3 transaction and select the proper format for decimal notation that is convenient to you.

    Save the setting, logout and re-login.

    Best Regards,

      Hello Ravi,

      It is indeed maintained as 1.000 PAC = 335 KG.

      Strange thing (now) is even if I maintain 1PAC = 1KG in material master UoM conversion setting, and when I create a schedule line of 1PAC, I see in MD04 as 335 KG/335 PAC. So now not sure if deviation is by factor of 335 or by 1000 and also UoM conversion setting in material master indeed has only partial effect on the result (perhaps other master data is influencing?).

      Also Lot size, rounding values all initialized.
