NO. it is not possible to change the base unit of measure after it was used in transactional documents.

From OSS note 138767

Within the material master record maintenance, you want to change the base unit of measure (base unit). During the change, the system performs extensive checks in order to avoid inconsistencies in the applications which use the material master.

In particular, the following checks are performed:

The base unit must not be defined as an alternative unit of measure for the material

No International Article Number must be assigned to the base unit

No proportion/product units must be defined for the material

No configurable material must be assigned

The material must not be used as a configurable material

Stock must neither exist for the previous period nor for the current period

No physical inventory must be active

No reservations or dependent requirements must exist for which the deletion indicator is not set

No planned orders must exist

No purchase requisitions, purchase orders or scheduling agreements must exist for which the deletion indicator is not set

No WM transfer requirements, no WM quants or no WM posting change notices must exist

The material must not be a bill of material

The material must not be contained in a bill of material

The material must not be used as a production resource/tool

The material must not be used in task lists

No standard cost estimate must exist for the current or future period

No production orders must exist

No planned independent requirements must exist

No run schedule headers must exist

If the base unit has dimensions, no serial number profile must be assigned

No sales and distribution documents must exist which have status Not processed or Partially processed.

Solution

If necessary, all reasons mentioned above must be eliminated by archiving the objects listed.svetja
