Important to know

  • Quantity values should be posted with a unit. A quantity of 1000 without a unit associated is inconsistent data. Review the data model and key figure type or the data flow filling the proivder and make sure, units are provided. For exceptional cases, you can use the RSADMIN parameter OLAP_UNIT_ERROR to display a different text or the initial value. This parameter was introduced with SAP note 622004 (A query displays the unit "ERR" or currency "ERROR"). This parameter is still valid in releases 7.x.
  • Using UOM in an DTP or in planning functions allows extra flags:

    • Allow initial source value in the transformation and planning function

      • 1079139 - Allowing initial source values in the transformation

    • No Conversion if factor not found (transformation and planning function)

      • 1495146 - No conversion if factors do not exist
