QM: units of measure with more than 3 characters

Postby Daniel Pereira » Tue Oct 29, 2002 11:39 am

Hi Bram,
Try to check any ISO (International Standard Organization) publication or
site as there should be a 1 to 3 caracter display for these UoM if these are
widely used. If ISO did not come accross these before and/or you need
to create them use transaction CUNI.

Hope it helps,

we solved this problem by adding the unit to the MIC short text. Also I found that many requested units are not real units of measurement and/or non SI-based units. Like CentiPoise is not valid any longer. Anyhow. If you have longer ones, make use of the ISO codes if available and appropiate as suggest earlier. Keep in mind that most of the SAP screens shows only the 6 digit unit name and not the description texts. For the printout on forms or labels you can adjust your SAPscript to print the short text instead the technical field. But this needs detailed check for feasability.

Best regards
