1 unit1 = 1 unit2 * coefficient

Define the destination unit over 3 alphanumeric characters.

  • Title (field COEAX2)

Destined notably to figure in the reports and the screens in which the record code can be entered or selected. This text is used to give a clear description to the record concerned.
