Sorry, Laszlo is right, of course. Calculation units relate List Schemas, not interactive schedules . And, as I understood, W/D Dimensions Preferences regard Dimension Markers only.
Don't feel too badly, Leo - there is a bit of a mess between calculation units and dimension units as far as schedules go...
Ever since interactive schedules were introduced, some of the display formatting was determined by dimension units and some was determined by calculation units, without any real logic and making it hard to format different schedules in different ways.
It is still impossible, for example, to have certain volume fields be in cubic feet and others be in cubic yards, for example. (In the US, we often measure concrete and construction fill in cubic yards, and heating volume in cubic feet.) Calculation Units, which would select between the two, are not memorized with a view - they do not have 'named' standards like dimensions that are view-associative.
Thus, it is completely impossible to have some live (interactive) schedules show fills as cu yards and others as cu feet. It has been this way for far too many years. (You can find many old threads here discussing this and other Calc-unit frustrations - as I recall, Duane Valencia was one of the most outspoken critics.)
I cannot remember offhand which other fields are formatted based on the Calculation Units. And, maybe this isn't something that affects the rest of the world (do you measure all volumes in cubic meters?). But, it has been a killer issue for the US for many years.
...By the way, welcome to the forums, I'm sure I am not the only one who has been appreciating your participation here so far...
PS Also notice another problem we have: the UNITS are not displayed for individual records - only for totals. So, it is essential to include a total line in any schedule that includes volumes just so you know what the units are.
