Copy of master data from ME 6.0 to ME15

Hi,

I have installed a new SAP ME 15 test site.

Now I want to copy some master data, E.g. Resource Types, Resources, Operations, NC Codes

from an ME 6.0 test site.

What is the best practice for this copy?

Best regards,

Johan

    Hi Johan!

    If you need to copy all objects of the some master data entity (for example, all resources of the site), then you can try Configuration Data Transfer. But the output file needs to be manually updated.

    If only some objects, then you'd raher try the legacy DataXchange or PAPI.

      Hi Johan,

      Both CDT, DataXchange and Site2Site are intended for same version to same version but could be used with some manual editing. Whether using CDT or XML or PAPI, I recommend you first export from the destination ME15 to get the correct format as otherwise your ME6.0 data, which has not been through the migration, could be missing something, and an apparently successful import may be hiding a version-mismatch (i.e. data corruption) problem in the imported records. Alternatively, migrate your ME60 database first.

      As well as Sergiy's point about all or selective, also consider if this will only ever be a one-time import of new data or if you also expect it to do updates.

      CDT can help with circular references of Resource Types, Resources and Operations.

      Regards,

      Andrew.

    Hi,

    Since there is no clear best practice for moving data between different versions, I decided to go with doing it manually since it is only a few records.

    This is just a brand new test system, so I don't have any ME60 database that should be upgraded.

    Best regards,

    Johan
