Try this, be sure to check my math.

1 MPa = 10.19716 kg/cm^2
1 kg/cm^2 = 10 g/mm^2
therefore
1 MPa = 101.9716 g/mm^2

Or at least that's how I think it works.

If "gm" stands for grams mass or just grams, the units you listed are incompatible. However, on earth, a gram exerts a force of 0.00981N and 1 Pa equals 1 N/m^2. Expanding, 1 N/mm^2 = 1000000 Pa = 1 MPa. You should be able to do the math from here...

Watch those units!
