SAP Business One recommends the optimum number of purchasing Uo Ms per package for the Qty per Package field.Once you specify the package type, SAP Business One calculates the number of purchasing Uo Ms each package unit could contain based on the measurements of the purchasing Uo M and package type, and fills the result in the Qty per Package field if it is equal to or larger than To define a default package type for each potential purchasing Uo M available for the item, in the Purchasing Uo M and Package Types window, click a Uo M in the purchasing Uo M list on the left, choose a package type in the package type list on the right, and choose the Set as Default pushbutton.If you have defined a default package type for a potential purchasing Uo M, when you select this Uo M as the purchasing Uo M, SAP Business One fills the Package Type field and the Qty per Package field automatically. The case is the purchasing Uo M, and the container is the purchasing package type.
When you specify the purchasing Uo M code, SAP Business One fills in the Purchasing Uo M Name field and the Items per Purchasing Uo M field with corresponding values, as defined in Uo M setup and Uo M group setup. There are 6 bottles (items per purchase Uo M) in one case.
The item that you buy is a bottle but you purchase it only as a case of 6 bottles.
Therefore, the unit of measurement is a case and there are 6 items per purchasing Uo M.
If you buy 5 cases, you are actually buying 30 bottles of the soft drink.
In all transactions, "case" is the purchasing Uo M and the number of items per purchasing Uo M is 6.
You then enter the quantity in purchasing Uo Ms in the purchase order.Note You can see all the package types in the List of Package Types window (choose from list) only when the Auto.Add All Package Definitions to New and Existing Items checkbox is selected in General Settings.If you import the purchase item, enter the customs group. You can select the customs group from the list, or select the Define New option to create a new customs group.; the system automatically enters the measurements of the purchase item.In addition, enter the values for the length, width, and height to calculate the volume of the item.
