SAP NOTE 1868047 = Dimension Specific Energy UOM KJG

I am currently applying changes in CUNI table:

Dimension - Specific Energy

Unit of Measure - KJG Kilojoule/gram

I noticed on the Conversion table, the Numerator figure is shown as 1.000.000 but there is no Decimal Place specified and SAP won't let me proceed when I added the dp in the figure.

Currently, our existing Numerator figure is set to 1000,000.

Could you confirm what the correct information should be inputted, please?

Should there be any Decimal Place?

Or should the Numerator figure be corrected to something else?

Please see SAP NOTE 1868047 from pages 3 to 4.

Many thanks.

Hi Maria,

I think this might be a confusion between the different decimal notations - "," vs "." ... You need to enter one million - without any decimal points:

Hi Mark,

Thank you for your time and input on this query. I was a bit thrown as the document differs slightly with regards to the figure you've given.

I enclose a snip for your attention.osnote-1868047-doc-extract-kjg.png

I also have a very issue when I tried to create PRM - Permeation Rate osnote-1868047-doc-extract-prm.png

On the document, it indicates Decimal Place set to 3 and the Denominator figure is 6.000.000.

Can you just confirm that I would not literally have to type in 6 dot 000 dot 000 but 6000 comma 000 as SAP would convert the figures into decimal places, please?

Thanks a lot.



Hi Maria,

6.000.000. is 6 Million and not 6 thousound [decimal sign] 000.
The Numerator and Denominator are used to convert from the base / SI unit to the UOM you currently are editing.

The "decimal places" determines the number of decimal places with which this measurement unit is displayed - and has nothing to do with the conversion and the Numerator / Denominator.

Just enter "6000000" and let the system set the thousand separator (6000.000).

With F7 you can test the conversion between different UoM (of the same dimension) and by this means check if you have set it up correct.

Kind Regards
