Decimal Point in Unit of Measurement

Updated May 18, 2018


I have a basic question, system is accepting decimals for unit of measurement Each or Number, which is absurd and illogical.
Checked Configuration in Global setting which is OK, that is even if I gave as Zero decimal
system field became blank.
What is missing? We are in 6.0.
Urgent feedback would be of great help.

Thanks in Advance.

    The system generates a warning when you maintain BOM items 'Unit of measurement & does not support decimal places' although decimal places are defined for the corresponding unit of measurement in Customizing

    Up to now, only field ANDEC 'Number of decimal places to which rounding should be performed' has been taken into account in the decimal place check.
    In future, if field ANDEC does not contain a decimal place, field DECAN 'Number of decimal places for number display' will be taken into account.

    Your problem might be because of authorization missing for the transaction code you mentioned for the user id which you are using.

    Thanks Mr.Chandan.

    Checked for authorisation.

    Ok though, since this is for all users.
