Can't change base unit of measure

Our material's base unit of measure is accidentally created as Piece(PC) instead of Square centimeter(CM2) in the Basic Data 1 screen.

How can we change it to CM2?

When we try in MM02 t.code it gives us those error briefly:

-Stocks already at plant level

-the material is used in bill of material

-standart cost estimates for the current period already exists..

Could u plz guide me how to correct this situation?

You can not change the UOM if there is any existing stock or Open PO's etc.

Firstly, you will need to reverse the Goods receipt and make the Stock Zero,

Then delete this particular item from all Open PO's/PRs

Delete the item from the Bill of Materials Used.

Take the help of your FI person to reverse the cost estimates,

Then only you will be able to change the UOM.
