Units on Imports


Big Business includes Fields on Imports for Units of Measure:
• UoM Abbrev. - abbreviation for unit of measure
• UoM Count - count for unit of measure
• UoM Qty - quantity for unit of measure
• UoM Price - price for unit of measure

This Solution describes using Units on Imports. (7154)






When you are mapping an import, like an Order Import, and you have Units of Measure features enabled, you will have additional Fields for import including:
• UoM Abbrev. - abbreviation for unit of measure
• UoM Count - count for unit of measure
• UoM Qty - quantity for unit of measure
• UoM Price - price for unit of measure

These work the same as the Fields on an Order. If you map data like CS, for case, to UoM Abbrev., the import will look for a matching entry on the item, like Soda Pop, to see if it comes in a case (CS) and if it does, fill in the Count (24/case). If you also map data like 1 for UoM Qty, this will order 1 CS, which is 24 Soda Pops.

If a customer is sending you the data and they want a 6-pack of Soda Pop, they may have a different Abbreviation than yours. They may send PK which standard for pack, but suppose you use 6P for six pack and 12P for twelve pack. In this case, you can import UoM Count and Big Business will find the match. If they send 1, PK, (of) 6 and you import 1 to UoM Qty and 6 to UoM Count, this will order 1 6P, which is 6 Soda Pops.

To simplify this for you customer, you can also add Part Numbers (SodaPop-24) that automatically set the UoM Count (24) so they can order 1 of Part Number, SodaPop-24, and this will order 1 CS, which is 24 Soda Pops. Part Numbers can also set their Price.
