    Specify the same in Sale unit in Material master (MMO1) Sales organisation data -1 Tab.

    Try now it will appear the sale unit of the material in the sale order.

    Have you tried with alternate UoM in the Material Master additional data tab.You define the alternate UoM and the conversion factor in Material Master.

    In "Customer Material Info record VD51" you get the basic UoM only.

    At Sales order level you will be able to enter the Customer Specific unit and with the conversion factor defined , the system accepts the UoM.

    If you still need any business specific requirements please do mention it with an example .

      Two ways this can be done, first, maintain the relevant UOM conversion in the material master and if the user knows what is the customer specific UOM (for example, by referring customer's PO), then same can be directly entered in the sales order. Note that the relevant pricing records in VK11/12 must be maintained in customer specific UOM.

      The second option, if the customer +material volume is high and if the users prefer to have it automated, then you need to go with user exit USEREXIT_MOVE_FIELD_TO_VBAP in program MV45AFZZ. To use this or any other exit, you may need to maintain customer+material+UOM combinations in a Z-table. From there, it should be populated in the sales order line item level. To make this work, again the material master UOM conversions/VK12 need to be maintained.

      Selection between the two requires analysis of the requirements/benefits by making the changes and how this improves the overall process.

    Check the following note under the tab Correction instructions 900335 or 900937 (depending on the version)

    Note 1064376 - Customer-specific determinations/validations of the delivery
