When should we use the QUAN type?
I rencently had to create a table Z for storing some kind of fidelity points of customers and I could not decide on which sap datatype should I use for the column storing those points.
The first thing that came to my mind was a INT4, but then I consiedered the possibility of using a QUAN type, then I read that I need to create a UNIT field of reference (which makes a lot of sense) and an ISO code for that UNIT.
I found inconvenient the fact that the unit I wanted to create has no ISO code (since it only exist within the business) and that for storing the unit I had to create an extra comun whose value will never change. Therefore, I decided to use the INT4 instead.
Did I made a good decision? When should we use the QUAN type?
Thank you very much for your time.
