Hi,

Variable order unit in material master is activated, if you want to order that material other than order unit which is defined in the base unit of measure. Usually system takes base unit of measure as order unit, if you want to procure with other order unit then you can use this varialbe order unit & activate it.

But before using other order unit you have to maintain that conversion in the additional data of material master.

Hi

The information from the field in the material master record is adopted in the purchasing info record. In the purchase order and in the source list, you can enter an order unit that differs from the one in the purchasing info record.

If you wish to specify a different order unit for a requisition, you must assign a source with a different order unit to the requisition.

The field also determines whether you work with conditions for each order unit.
