The purpose of this page is to clarify the understanding of the function module UNIT_CONVERSION_SIMPLE.


UNIT_CONVERSION_SIMPLE converts values from one measurement unit to another and rounds the result to the number of decimal places maintained in the measurement unit table, if necessary. The rounding is up ('+'), down ('-'), commercial ('X') or no rounding (SPACE), depending on the parameter ROUND_SIGN.
It can also be used for rounding according to the measurement unit table only. In this case UNIT_IN = UNIT_OUT.
Conversion requires that both units are maintained in the measurement unit table and have the same dimension and are not both without dimension.
Rounding is also possible for dimensionless units.
