Hi Azar,

Follow the steps below. This example will let you understand the UOM Conversion Factor.

  1. Create an item with Default Unit of Measure = Box. Set Valuation Rate & Standard Selling Rate. Make it Maintain Stock.

  1. In UNITS OF MEASURE section, Add Box & Nos UOM as shown in below image.

  1. Set “Box” in Default Purchase Unit of Measure in PURCHASE, REPLENISHMENT DETAILS section. And set “Nos” in Default Sales Unit of Measure in SALES DETAILS section.

  1. Now, you can generate a new stock either from Stock Entry --> Material Receipt OR from Purchase Receipt. Here, I am showing you the Stock Entry Example.

  2. Go to Stock Entry, select item and give 10 QTY. Here, UOM will be Box as we set default UOM as Box in Item Master.

  3. Change UOM from Box to Nos. It will automatically converts QTY from 10 to 1000. As we mentioned conversion factor Box:Nos to 1:100

  1. Save and Submit the Stock Entry. And click on View > Stock Ledger report. It will show you the stock has been increased to 1000

This way you can use UOM conversion rate to multiply the QTY

Now, you can sale this Item in “Nos” as mentioned Default Sales Unit of Measure = Nos in Item Master.

I hope this will help you to understand the UOM & UOM Conversion.
