Conversion of Order Unit to Base Unit - material master - PO info record
is it possible for SAP to automatically put the
Denominator and the Numerator for Conversion to Base Units of Measure out of the material master (additional data - units of measure) into the purchasing info record for the material (ME12) under General Data - Order Unit - Equal To.
The problem we have is that we changed the value within the material master, but didn't change it in the inforecord. So we ordered a wrong amount of materials. Is it possible to automatically trigger that change from the material master to the inforecord?
Jürgen L replied
changes in master data have only effect to NEW data, created after this change .
SAP never updates automatically already existing data.
Answer: No there is nothing that can trigger an automatic change.
changes to ratios between base unit and alternative units are unusual and the changer has to know about the effect. it is not only the existing info record, you have to think as well about open POs which still have the old conversions.
