Different UOM for different customers on outbound documents

Hi,

The requirement is to have metric UOM on outbound documents for canadian customers and regular UOM for US customers. I know for EDI outbound, this can be handled in the user-exits in the idoc function modules. How do we approach this problem if we have a print output or any other output type except for EDI?

Thanks,

Kumar.

    You can have separate Sales UoM for each Sales Organization. Maintain separate for US and Canada. Then you can create orders in different uom. Maintain UoM in Material Master. EDI Outbound will take the UoM as maintained in the Sales Orders.

    Let me know if you need more help.

    Pl. reward if you find this information is useful.

    Thanks,

    Ramesh

      Can you explain the steps involved briefly. Please include any Tcodes used also. Can we maintain seperate uom for customers too or can it be only for sales org?

      thanks.

    Hi Kumar,

    Goto transaction MM02 (change material master). Enter a material number you would like to change, and select the Sales: Sale Org. Data view. You will need to enter the sales organization (for Canada).

    Once in the material master, you will see two units of measure: the base unit, and the sales unit. For each material in the Canadian sales org, you will need to set the sales unit to KG.

    Please reward if helpful. I will check back later to see how this worked for you.

    Best Regards,

    Aaron

      Hi Ketan,

      if you are talking about the weight units then there is no way you can set up such a scenario in configuration as far as i know. you need to have a user-exit in function module or a routine in sap scripts. I hope this helps you.
