Reporting Data in Alternate Units of Measure

30 Views

We have a requirement to report data in base unit of measure and also in pounds and kilograms. I have read the paper "How to Report Data in Alternate Units of Measure". My problem is that in our R/3 system the conversion from base unit of measure to pounds is maintained, but no conversion from base unit of measure to kilograms is maintained. In BW, I have 0MAT_UNIT for conversion to pounds but not to kilograms. For the solution to work, am I correct in thinking that the conversion to kilograms must exist in 0MAT_UNIT?

Also, the paper states that it is applicable to BW releases 2.0A to 3.1C. Those of you on BW 3.5 - is there new functionality or a different way of handling reporting in alternate units of measure?

Thanks for your help,
