Conversion of measurement units and possible entries (F4) help

Function group SCVU

This function group contains the following function modules:

·        CONVERSION_EXIT_CUNIT_INPUT
With this function module, you specify the internal measurement unit for a commercial measurement unit (three-character external measurement unit).
It is automatically called when measurement units are input on the screen.

·        CONVERSION_EXIT_CUNIT_OUTPUT
With this function module, you specify the language-dependent commercial measurement unit (three-character external measurement unit) and the associated short and long text, for an internal measurement unit.
It is automatically called when measurement units are output to the screen, and by the WRITE command.

·        CONVERSION_EXIT_LUNIT_INPUT
With this function module, you specify the internal measurement unit associated with a technical measurement unit (six-character external measurement unit).
It is called automatically when measurement units are input on the screen.

·        CONVERSION_EXIT_LUNIT_OUTPUT
With this function module, you specify the language-dependent technical measurement unit (six-character external measurement unit) and its associated short and long text for an internal measurement unit.
It is called automatically when measurement units are output to the screen, and by the WRITE command.

·        DIMENSION_CHECK
With this function module, you check whether the internal measurement unit corresponds to the specified dimension. It may also be checked whether it is a commercial unit. It is recommended, that you support the choice of valid measurement units for a specified dimension with the function module UNIT_OF_MEASUREMENT_HELP.

·        DIMENSION_GET
With this function module, you specify the dimension key and the dimension text, depending on the contributions of the basic units.
As the seven possible contributions have the default value zero, you must only specify the non-zero contributions under EXPORTING when calling.

·        DIMENSION_GET_FOR_UNIT
With this function module, you specify the dimension key associated with a measurement unit

·        UNIT_OF_MEASUREMENT_HELP
With this function module, you display in a dialog box either all measurement units or all commercial measurement units of a specified dimension (external measurement unit and associated long text). If you do not specify a dimension, all measurement units are displayed. You can control whether the measurement units are only displayed, or are offered for selection, with a parameter.
