I have a material with batch classification.
The material has two characteristics.
One is a number called VALUE.
The other is also a number (called CONVERSION) and shall be deived from the first.
A procedure is created and assigned to the second characteristic.
$SET_DEFAULT ($SELF, CONVERSION , $SELF.VALUE / 6000)
When I post a goods receive (movement Type 501) the characteristics can be filled . The field VALUE is set with 12000.
I was expecting the characteristic CONVERSION to be calculated as '2' and filled by the procedure.
This is not the case.
If however, I try to fill it manually, the system accepts only the calculated value '2'. Otherwise an error is shown.
How can I force the system to calculate and fill the second characteristic when insserting a value in the first ?
Thanks for any help.
