The base unit of measure is purchased differently than sold.

Posted on by 62
Hi.
The company has two measurement units PQT and PZA.
The base unit of measurement is PQT, it is sold in that unit of measurement, but it is purchased with another different unit of measurement which is PZA.
There are two units of measurement, and the solution that was implemented is to convert PZA to the equivalent of a PQT, a PQT contains 144 PZA, that is, 1/144 = 0.00694 would remain.
 
 
//
 
The problem comes that when purchasing the equivalent of a PQT it contains 144 PZA in the card item in the Inventory group, it appears in the purchase orders in decimals.
 
//
When you receive the product it is saved with decimals, we cannot save in decimals.
Is there any configuration to be able to round the closest thing to the integer so that it is 1?
 
//

Please I need your help, thank you very much

    If this situation has already occurred, I think it can only be adjusted through the Item journal. . .
    Hopefully other experts can give you better advice.

    you are setting up the base UOM using the large uom. this will cause issues going forward for your inventory. 
    best practice is to use PZA as the base UOM.

    "The best practice for base unit of measure (BUOM) is to use the smallest unit that the material is regularly handled in. This helps avoid fractions of units leftover due to rounding."
     
    You currently have PQT set as your base unit of measure.  It would be better to set PZA as your base unit of measure since it is the smaller of the two.  Track the item in your inventory using PZA, but set PQT as your default for selling.  And in the Item Units of Measure page, be sure to set your Quantity Rounding Precision to '1' so that you don't end up with fractions of PZA left in inventory:
