CBM Calculation in Length*Width*Height to Volume


I want to convert cm to cbm (cubic meter).My Client purchase an 3 dimension item ie a rough block. The formula to convert cm to cbm is [Lenght (cm) * Width (cm) * Height (cm)]/1000000.

I have done in the following way, but still i am not getting the output correctly

Step 1 - Defined in Length & Width UOM master

Code - cm

Unit Name - Centimeter

Volume Code - cbm

Length - 0.000001 (While entering the same , it takes as blank)

Step 2 - General Settings - Display, i made the default Length UOM as - Centimeter

Step 3 - When i enter the Length (200cm), Width (200cm), Height(200cm) in cm, the volume shows the 8000000 as cbm, which is wrong. I need to get the result 8 CBM.

Can any of you solve this issue out ?
