Unit of measure conversion!

Is there a function module or a way to convert material quantities from one unit of measure to another?

Thanks,

    Thanks. But my understanding is that unless we maintain the UOM to which we want to convert the material quantity as alternate UOM, we can not use these function modules to do the conversion.

    For example if I want to convert material XXXX from CS (Cases) to TS (thousands), I believe TS should be defined as alternate UOM for this material in the material master.

    Am I right?

    Thanks,

    Hi Somen,

    I think you are right.

    Can you confirm with MM consultant?
