Hi Priyanka,

To this FM u have to pass the material number, Input unit(itab1-meins), Output unit(Base unit-mara-meins), Quantity. In Importing parameter E_MENGE pass one variable. After FM call u will receive the converted value in this variable.

Just check the where used list of the FM to see the sample code.

              I_MATNR              = P_MATNR
              I_IN_ME              = P_MEEHT "Input unit
              I_OUT_ME             = P_AUSME "Base unit
              I_MENGE              = P_MENGE "Input Quantity
              E_MENGE              = I_AUMENGE "Quantity in base unit.
              ERROR_IN_APPLICATION = 1
              OTHERS               = 2.
