Hi Team,

I am writing this blog to better understand the concept of Purchase Order UOM change using Info Record in simple way by any SAP User.


In today's business environment, managing procurement processes accurately is critical to an organization's success. SAP, a leading ERP system, provides effective procurement management solutions, including Purchase Orders (PO's). Changing the Unit of Measure (UOM) in their SAP Purchase Orders is a common challenge for businesses.

Info Record is a useful tool that simplifies and streamlines the process of handling UOM changes in SAP Purchase Orders.

Solution in SAP :
