Wow – 3 TLA’s in one title! In last week’s Feature Friday, we talked more about BOM import and DataRoundLoadAbility. Today’s tip covers Unit of Measure information for reimport. Note: you can only import the Unit of Measure if you have a field in the Item Details tab of that type. So be sure to include that field in the BOM view you use to export (we talked about how to do that in a previous blog, Looking at BOMs in a Different Way).
The ‘implicit’ Units field from the BOM is not sufficient for reimporting as it only shows the abbreviated name of the UoM rather than the full name.
