    Hi

    As mentioned, Base Unit can be changed provided there is no follow on docs like open PO's, PRs / Stocks etc in the system.

    Apart from Base Unit of Measure, you can have a Sales Unit, Order Unit or a Unit of issue for Production, Provided you maintain a conversion in the additional data tab of the MMR.

    You can activate the Variable order unit in the info record keeping the same as "1", with the necessary conversion.

    Regards

    Merwyn
