In the table for the UOMs, you see the far left columns, one is UOM in 8 and the one next is UOM in 9? I forget the actual label, but what you can do for those is to change what the UOM will be in 9 from 8, so you can change â€œ to a IN for the 9 version and the program updates the records.
If they are just wrong, but you know what they should be, you can do the same as before, update it in the 9 column to the correct abbreviation you want to use going forward.
I am not sure why you would no longer use a unit of measure, UOMs are pretty standard, itâ€™s not like part numbers or things like that, a UOM is a UOM, you should put it in the correct class.
Also, the count section can be tough since multiple types can be done differently, Normally, I suggest that people go with EA for each individual piece instead of multiple options like PC(piece), then a different set of codes for packs, boxes, cases, etc since not all cases or boxes are universal. So use something like BX24 or CS24 if something is bought in a box or case of 24, then also you could have BX12 or CS48 as well, or . This then makes your conversion factors easy, I forget if UOMs are limited to 3 or 4 characters though, so it might need to be B24 or C1K(case of 1000). Those are just some examples that people I have worked with have used.
The complicated things are what the special classes will be created for, example, you buy rolls of sheet metal by the pound, but you use or sell it by the square foot or meter, those are unique and will work themselves out later after the conversion process is done.

Okay I understand what you are saying.
Now what should I do to an existing UOMs from 803 coversion that have symbols(' for inches) and also Mnemonic(IN) listed?
We also have certain UOMs that we no longer use and few with wrong Mnemonics; Should I dump into a custom class ID and inactivate them later in 905?
