How do I amalgamate my UOM?

The "Amalgamate UOM" page allows you to amalgamate/merge two units of measure (UOM) that may exist in your database into one single unit of measure (UOM).

Caution: This can only be done with like units that have the same type (Weight to Weight, Volume to Volume, Unit to Unit).

To Review your UOM (Units of Measure)

  1. Select "Utility" from the dropdown menu located at the top of the page.
  2. Select "Amalgamate UOM" from the dropdown menu.
  3. Two (2) lists will be displayed: the "Master UOM" and "Duplicate UOM". The list on the left side is the "Master UOM" list. This is the list of UOM for your database; the one you want to keep. On the right side, a list of "Duplicate UOMs" that are in OC Enterprise is displayed.

To Amalgamate Your UOM (Units of Measure)

Amalgamating will clean your database by combining and removing duplicate units of measure that may exist, leaving only a single master UOM list in the database.

  1. In the "Master UOM" list, select the UOM that you want to keep in your database.
  2. In the "Duplicate UOM" list, select the UOM that you want to amalgamate with the master UOM.
  3. Click the "Amalgamate" button located in the upper left of the screen.
  4. A confirmation page will appear as shown in the image below.
  5. Click the "Amalgamate" button again to confirm your choice or click "Back to Amalgamate UOM" to cancel amalgamation.
