UoM

Hi

I want to define the Litres in unit of measurement where can i define.

If I define at Administration-- ->Setup ->Inventory ----->Length & Width UoM I can give the code, Unit name, and what

will be the volume code and Length(mm)

If I define at Administration-- ->Setup ->Inventory ----->Weight UoM I can give the code, Unit name, and what will be the

Weight(mg)

So where can I define the UoM Litres.

My Client will purchase the consumables in litres I can define the Purchasing UoM as ltr in Inventory----->Purchasing tab

    Sandy,

    Litre as you mentioned should be defined in Inventory----->Purchasing tab

    Since the Weight is in (Mg) you need to calculate 1 litre = ? Mg

    Hi Sandy,

    If you want to purchase the consumables in litres (purchase unit), the key point is what unit is used for storage.

    For example, you purchase in litres but sell in millilitre (the minimum unit for storage). You don't need to define the 'litres'.

    Just enter 'litre' in the Item Master Data-> purchase tab-> 'Purchasing UoM' field and 1000 in 'Items per Purchase Unit' field.

    When you add new purchase document, just select 'no' in 'Base Units' field on the line for this item and you can purchase purchase in litres but sell in millilitre.
