Dear Experts,

I have 2 materials in same plant with same base UOM but conversion factor is different.

For example Material A has UOM is NOs and converstion factor is 400 Nos = 1 M3

Material B has UOM is NOs and converstion factor is 200 Nos = 1 M3

Now if i trafering stock from A to B for 1 M3 then it should subtract(-) 400 Nos in A and add 200 Nos to B.

But currently system is -400 to A and +400 to B is doing.

Please suggest me how to trasnfer stock based on conversion factor.

Thanks in Advance

an identical base unit of measure is the technical precondition, but you have to make sure that it is logically as well the same, which is not the case in your example.

the standard MB1B with 309 movement is not able to fulfill your wish.

you should better use a production order to produce 1 NOS of material B from 1 NOS of material A.

Or you issue 1 NOS of material A with 201 movement and add 1 NOS of material B with 202 movement. Disadvantage: the price will not flow from A to B, and you may need to adjust it with MR21.

Material to Material transfer by movt type 309.

It is SAP standards that both of the material should have same base unit of measures.

Hi Shaik,

While doing Material to Material transfer posting, the system will select the quantity maintained with the Base UOM of the material irrespective of whatever additional unit of measure you maintain in the system.

Please also look into the following link:

Thanks Manoj.

In my wise UOM is same in both materials.

But due to convertion factor system is add/subtracting qty's.

Is there any other alternative way to achecive the same(by writing ABAP code).

I don't think that it is possible; this is the very reason why both materials must have the same BUOM.
