Can we restrict user to not to allow user to allow BOM to be enter only 3 digits after decimal.

is it possible can  we write a validation check to make sure that users enter the correct qty value?


On a BOM the qty can not have more than 3 digits after the decimal, we need to check this because SAP only allows 3 digits.


See example below:

OK – 12.111

Not Ok – 12.1111


Ok – 0.111

Not ok – 0.1111

Yes. you can definitely write a custom event (Update table) to validate this input

One point to note. Since BOM updates happen a lot, the event also will get fired for each row. So, it is better to run this check when the user is submitting the ECO

Hope this helps

Hi Raj,

Thanks for information and its helpful.

I was looking for the OOB solution, is this possible with Character sets ?

Good thought. But looks like you can’t do in BOM Quantity field even though you can set it to Numeric

If you configure a new “numeric” field, you can set the scale to 3 and that should solve. But they don’t seem to allow it in Quantity field
