I have some products, which has two units. I mean the products are coming inside the box and in each box may be there is 30 or 50 units. So if I sell 2 units means actually I am selling 60 units(2*30) or 100 units(2*50). Any idea how can I import these two different units in the system? And i have to display the same on Sales Invoice also.
Thanks in advance
I recommend setting the "inventory unit" of items to its least possible unit. Then, you can setup additional unit which translate from the least possible unit.
For example, one box can have 30 pcs or 50 pcs. Set the inventory unit to "pcs". Then add 2 new unit call "30pcBox" and "50pcBox" and set their respective conversion from "pcs".
Finally, set language specific Unit texts for both "30pcBox" and "50pcBox" so in document generated they show a more user friendly description. (e.g. Boxes)
I can see the option "Unit Conversion" on top of the released products. How does it work? I think there I can put the conversion like 1box = 30 pieces or something. And if I put that can I put the price per piece and the price of the 1 box is supposed to be (30* 1 piece) price and it can be displayed on the invoice?
Thanks in advance,
That option prompts you to setup unit conversion with respect to a certain item. For example, you can set 1 box = 30 pcs for Item A, and 1 box = 45pcs for Item B. You don't need to setup 2 different "box"es in this case.
In standard AX, it doesn't automatically translate prices between units. You'll have to setup default price per pieces AND per box. Customization will be needed to fulfill this requirement.
As you said I have to set up two different prices for the two different units like Pieces and box?
Is it possible to set up two different prices for the two different units for the same item?
Customization in the sense you mean for the display in Invoice?
1) You can setup price per item-unit combination in standard AX. So "two different prices for two different units for one item" is supported.
2) Customization is needed if you want prices to be translated according to unit conversion.
e.g. You setup per-piece price for Item A to be $10. And you also setup unit conversion of 1box = 30pcs for Item A.
Now if you enter a sales order line of 1 pc of Item A, $10 will be automatically entered to unit price.
However, if you enter 1 box of Item A, the unit price will remain 0. If you want AX to enter unit price = $300 for 1 box of Item A, customization is needed.
i am facing same problem, can you advise me?
I think you need to create a two different UOM - i.e. 30UnitBox and 50UnitBox and setup the unit conversation accordingly.
One of the unit which you think most frequently used can be set up as default sales unit and another can be added manually on the sales line during the actual order taking.
I hope this helps.
