It should be already resolved.

Dear Deepak,

Good evening and greetings,

It is better to maintain the alternate unit of measure in the material master level if that particular material is always to be accounted in that way. There is an option to overcome this at the transaction level in most of the material posting transactions if required.

Please reward points if found useful.

Thanking you,

With kindest regards

SAP has provided a optiom tomaintain the conversion factor at the material master level. This will be effective when you maintian the alerbative unit of measure active in the puchasig view of the material master.

If you do not maintian in material master you have the optiom to maintain in purchasing info record.Convesion factors which you have maintained in info record will be defaulted in the purchase oder.

Again in Purchase you have the option to maintian the conversion factor. The convesion facto in PO wil be final.

Hope this will clear your doubts,
