UOM Conversion Factor


My Item is a bag of cement.

The default unit of measure is Bag.

I want to use the cement by the Gram in a BOM, there are 42638 Grams in 1 Bag.

So, I put Gram, and Conversion Factor 0.00002345 (1/42638), but it will not accept it.

Am I doing this right?


Change the precision in System Settings or individual fields, I think its rounding to 3 decimal places(default).


Also check this…




Just curious, what was the issue?


in case of quantity issue you need to create a product bundle and no need to duplicate the same item as unite & cartoon this will avoid lots of suffering, but now the confusion is how to do this in case of weight units?
