LSMW Question......Important


Hi Experts,

LSMW stands for Legacy System Migration Workbench and its used for migration of the data after the implementation is done (main general use).. If I am right??

Well, Now I have a question:

I have a flat file in my desktop which is sequential file and its has the same structure as that of a table which I have created in the data dictionary. Can I use the LSMW to migrate the data in flat file to my table in R/3?? Can I do that??? Here is the structure and file names given below:

For eg:

My flat file looks like this:

location: desktop

file type: sequential file

structure of file:

lifnr c (8)

name1 c (35)

regio c (8)

Land1 c (8)

destination table:

zablif1 (my own created table)

Same structure as that of flat file.

So how do I go forward, which interface method should I select in order to upload to R/3...

Also, what I read in the books was that we can only use LSMW to migrate data to tables like vendor master and customer master and not to the user defined tables like z tables. also, today I tried to migrate some data but with the batch input, we have to give the object name and it has possible entries which are like vendor master, customer master and similiar tables.

so guys give me some infomration about it.. I will greatly appreciate your answers..
