    Both LSMW and SXDA are generic data transfer tools whereas BDC is one mechanism of transferring data. Both SXDA and LSMW offer you to choose between various data transfer protocols such as call transaction(BDC), IDOCs, BAPIs, Business Objects or existing standard SAP programs for various conversion wrapped under transaction SXDB.

    • Can you please let us know what you meant by data conversion routines? A BDC recording or some BAPI call or just a subroutine pool?

      Material master is a tough one to write conversion for. You can use SAP standard program that does DI or you can probably use a function module. I don't remember the name of the FM but you can search for 'MATERIALMAINTDARK

    I think it is more like LSMW rather than BDC. But LSMW is not directly linked to SXDA. Please check out this link.

    Hi Kannan,

    LSMW and SXDA are both tools for data Migration.

    BDC is used for transfering data from legacy system to SAP or SAP to SAp system.Diffrence is that LSMW and SXDA is that it is providing you more flexibility.With these you have choice for data migration.In some practical senario BDC is not very much effective to use,in case of LSMW ,SXDA you have choice like IDoc ,Direct Input,BAPI.

    In SXDA you can use Objects already existing or created by you for loading.You can use LSMW objects in SXDA.

    Regards,

    Albert
