  5. In Unit, select the extra unit that you want to assign.

    Besides the stock in the basic unit, Profit now also shows the stock in this unit. This is called the Virtual stock.

    One of the places where you can view the virtual stock is on the Stock overview tab in the article properties. The virtual stock is in fact a conversion of the stock in the basic unit to the stock in the alternative, extra unit.

  7. Enter the quantity in Number per unit.
