Mass asset master change in Production


We need to perform mass asset master record changes in Production (for example mass change of cost center, plants, etc.) and I found that this is done by defining substitution rules (GGB1), which contain to which cost center to be changed, then running worklist with AR01, AR31. But that means every time you want to do mass change in Production, you need to change the substitution rule and transport it in Production, which is not really an option. What is the best way to perform asset mass masetr record changes in Production?

    Hi,

    I agree with Jay-R Cruz, you better create LSMW on your own using recording functionality.

    You can have a look at this

    LSMW for Functional Consultants in simple step-by-step way

    It can be pretty useful when it comes to lsmw.

    Hi ,

    YOu do mass change by creating Subsitution rules in OA02.

    Please create your subsitution rule in OA02 and the run AR31 to do change

    Subsitution rule need to transport and once they are in Production you can execute iN AR31 in production

      Hi Preeti and all,

      I agree, LSMW is for sure more flexible, but then I need to give access to LSMW in Production to users and train them. So I would like to explore the substitution option if it is possible.

      It is clear to me that I can change the set in Production to replace 300 assets with another 200 assets. But how can I change directly in Production the cost center to be substituted? Imagine that 300 assets have to change to cost center X, then 200 other assets to cost center Y. So I can change the set from 300 assets to 200 assets, but I can't change the cost center from X to Y, as the subsitutable field can be only constant value or exit, no option for set as far as I can see.

    Hi,

    I think LSMW is a better way or a BDC recording through SHDB T-Code will also be an option. But for mass changes of Asset Master, its better to use LSMW. Recording to LSMW will not be more then half hour and the same you have to authorize not to all users but only to select users who are having authorization to change the Asset master.

    Regards,

    Malhar.
