    You should look at OSS note 605861 - Provision of a BAdI for input help for quantities in UD

    The info below is copied from that note. There is more to the note so you'll have to download the note for the full solution.


    Cause and Prerequisites

    In the SAP standard source code, up to now no function existed in the usage

    decision for entering quantities in other unit of measures than in the base

    unit of measure.


    With the import of the assigned Support Package or the implementation of

    this note, a Business Add-In is made available with which you can program

    an input help for quantities in the usage decision.

    For example, this enables you to specify quantities for the stock posting

    in an alternative unit of measure in the usage decision. Via a

    corresponding BAdI implementation, you can call up a dialog box - in which

    you can specify the respective quantity with the required unit - in the

    usage decision when you use the input help (F4) for the quantity fields.

    However, the quantity is always transferred in base unit of measure to the

    stock posting.

    The BAdI can only be used for stock-relevant inspection lots. You can only

    enter the quantities in other unit of measures manually (explicit call of

    the input help).

    You can implement new BAdI QEVA_ALT_QTY_INPUT using Transaction SE19.

    Take also the documentation on the BAdI into account.

    You can transfer the BAdI definition together with the respective

    documentation using the assigned Support Package.

    If you want to implement the note directly, you have to carry out the

    following manual steps for the definition of the BAdI:

      Sorry. In SAP you can only post in the BUOM. Even the OSS note indicates this. That the Badi is only used to change the display on the screens but if check the material movement document you'll see the posting is still in the BUOM.

      I don't think you'll find anyway to change this.
