Please just post in one thread Keith90.

The answer to your question is - you can't. nMDS is scaleless and is strictly a method to best present multidimensional data in a 2d framework. PCO is a projection method that can run on any distance measure and has the advantage of having scales (PCO's) that are interpretable. Best practice is to look at both methods and decide which is best for your data set.
