You can check Sample CSV File and use it for your reference.

How to import CSV file

You can use default Magento's import functionality to import the prepared CSV file. You need to go to Admin > System > Data Transfer > Import. Here, select "Product Unit Quantities Import" for Entity Type Dropdown.

The upload the prepared CSV file and import data. You can use Magento's guide to know details about all other fields and how to run the import.

Export

The configured and assigned values of units and quantities for any product can also be checked in exported product data. You can use the default Magento's export functionality to export the product and in the exported CSV, you can check the values.

Note

The same exported CSV file can't be used to update and import units and quantities configuration values for any product. For importing products with units and quantities configuration values, you will need to use a separate CSV as mentioned above.

You can use default Magento's guide to know how to export the product CSV.
