Quantity Conversion (TCode: RSUOM )

I search the Forum , based on that I have done something , still I have some questions ,

Can any one help me to solve this…

I am using BW7.0's feature - Quantity Conversion (TCode: <b>RSUOM</b>).

1) In the BEx Tab page of

Characteristic 0MATERIAL, maintained the field "Base Unit of Measure" as 0BASE_UOM

2) In the BEx Tab page of

Characteristic 0MATERIAL, maintained the field "Unit of Measure for Char." by click on the New button, it will generate a DataStore Object, which will store information for calculating the conversion factor.

3) I have created Transformation from 0MAT_UNIT_ATTR to Generated DSO

4) The Mapping is

MATNR ---> 0MATERIAL. ( Material )

MEINH ---> 0UNIT ( Unit of Measure )

UMREZ --- >0UOMZ1D ( Counter )

UMREN ---> 0UOMN1D ( Denominator )


> 0BASE_UOM ( Base Unit of Measure )

<b>Question 1 : -</b>

Which field I have to assign to 0BASE_UOM ( Base Unit of Measure )

I have assigned MEINH to 0BASE_UOM is it Correct ???????

5) Fill in the DataStore generated with data, using the DataSource 0MAT_UNIT_ATTR Using Transfermation and DTP.

6) Data is Loaded Successfully.

<b>Question 2:-</b>

When I am activating the DSO request it is getting Read

I am trying to remove the SID flag in DSO Setting’s .. but it is not in Change mode.

How can I activate the request…

7) Create a Quantity Conversion Type through TCode RSUOM, the Conversion factor can choose 1,3 or 4, with reference to 0MATERIAL InfoObject.

<b>Question 3:-</b>


In UoM Tab, what I have to do ….

means which radio button I have to select For source and Target Unit’s

    Hi Shaik,

    The conversion type is a combination of different parameters (conversion factors, source and target units of measure) that determine how the conversion is performed. In terms of functionality, quantity conversion is structured similarly to currency translation.

    Quantity conversion allows you to convert key figures with units that have different units of measure in the source system into a uniform unit of measure in the BI system when you update them into InfoCubes.

    1. Check whether you have defined Units for Key figures (e.g., Quantity, etc.,)

    2. You can define your conversion types in RSUOM as you do for currency conversion.

    e.g., define your Source & Target Units based on your business requirement.

    3. Numerator / Denominator – normally this is maintained in R/3 itself. These are conversion factors. (e.g., 10 TABS = 1 Unit)

    4. You said that you have assigned MEINH to 0BASE_UOM. Yes it is correct. Also define your units to respective key figures.

    Hope it helps,

      Dear ,

      When I am executing the report , it is not converting …

      I check the DSO Data , the Counter and Denominator data is Matching with R/3 ( ECC6 )


      Material No : 2000 have Conversion Types

      <b>1 KG = 1 KG.

      1000 CAR = 18,641 KG.

      100 IPR = 10,066 KG.</b>

      Material No : 3000 have Conversion Types

      <b>1 KG = 1 KG.

      1000 CAR = 25,470 KG.

      100 IPR = 13754 KG.</b>

      My user wants to see in report all Qty in CAR.

      Sometime he want to see all in KG.

      But it is not converting in Query Runtime…
