    Hi,

    Use NODIM formula in each column to be displayed

    or

    convert the quantities to a coomon unit either in Update rule or at report level.

    With rgds,

    Hi chaitu,

    You have * symbol becuase you are adding different kind of unit of measure. You must introduce Unit in drill down to have sum with the detail of the corresponding unit.

    Another solution is to introduce formula NODIM, but you will have sum of not equivalent objects in terms of unit of measure.

    Maybe in report you can also introduce conversion of units, to have all at a common unit of measure.

    Ciao.

      Hi chaitu,

      Refer to this topic:

      Here you will find a How To doc and also some other suggestions for altrnative unit of measure.

      For NODIM you have only to create in BEx a new formula and use NODIM function under DATA functions, but I do not suggest you this way.

      Ciao.

      Riccardo.
