    Hello Chanana,

    While you specify files in LSMW choose separator option as tabulator.

    If you have field names at teh begining,

    check FIELD NAMES at START of file

    Hi,

    You can use excel doc to import your data.

    For this you have to create an Excel file which should be tab delimited text file means you to save as .txt not as .xls.

    In excel you get # chars as it is not unicode as txt file and therefore for spaces covered by tab is filled with those chars.

    Hope it helps.

    Regards
