2172551 - Conversion is only possible if the Unit of Measure is from the same dimension


You have an issue with XML processing due to dimensionless unit of mesure conversion.  You notice that XML goes into error in SRM side (in transaction SXMB_MONI or /N/SAPPO/PPO2) and the document is not created or updates in the SRM side. You notice that the error of units conversion is thrown in function unit_conversion_simple_old.

In most of the cases the root cause is that the document has different Unit of Measure - UOM in the Price or schedule line XML tags. Those units are dimension less and the conversion cannot take place in the above mentionned function.
