Dear rag

Go to material master, select "Additional data" and click on "Units of measure". There maintain 1 in "X" tab, Case in "AUn" and 12 in "Y" tab, Kgs in "BUn".

Now maintain your pricing for 1 case and create sale order.

Base UOM is that in which the stocks are managed. You have not explained about your product. If it is an article then, define the Base UOM as EA or PC etc., which specifies it as a unit and then the gross and net weights can be maintained. The Base UOM is multiplied by the gross weight to give the wieght of the case.

Since you have specified 12 KG for each case - it multiplied 12 with the gross weight of the Base UOM (which is 12 kgs in yur case)

It looks very confusing, but please go thro this again and you will understand the logic. Please change only the Base UOM to EA or PC and observe. Everything works fine.
