Unit of measurement conversion

Hi all

does anyone know a function module that allow me to convert beetween different unit of measurement.

For instance from liter to KG?

Thanks in advance

Hi Alessandro,

You cannot convert litres to kilos or any such non-standard conversions with this function module. This is useful only to do standard unit conversions of the same DIMID(dimension ID specifies whether the unit is for measuring MASS or VOLUME or LENGTH etc).

Imagine you have a litre of crude oil and a litre of water. Obviously they don't convert to the same KG weight. So for such conversions you have to maintain the conversion factors in the material master. But 1 litre of crude oil and 1 litre of water convert to the same number of gallons, because both are the same measurement group.

Hope this clarifies.
