    Major challanges could include.....

    1) How to extract the data from legacy? Do you have a resource to code a program in the legacy system. Do you extract raw data or do you do a conversion against it before writing it out. In our case we had a programmer code it so that the data would be already converted to SAP specific codes and formatting.

    2) How to know what fields are needed during upload in or for the transaction to complete successfully. In this case, it was a little common sense as well as some trial and error.

    3) How to decipher the standard SAP messages during upload, and how to exactly fix the errors. Again, some common sense and mostly trial-and-error.

    Regards,

    Rich Heilman
