Operation Base Quantity Change in Routing (different value for different routing)


After searching for hours, i found many threads on how we can change task list, work center, control key etc, and also found how we can change operation base quantity if its same for all the code (ie only one value),

But my requirement is we have some 10K routing and we need to change operation base quantity of all at mass but the catch here is we have different Base quantity for individual routing,

I tried changing them by Tcode CA85N for 2 code, i gave material code as input in selecting criteria and in value field i gave range like say 150, 200,400,400 in base quantity field

when i did mass change, all the code routing base value was updated with smallest value ie 150, i know the problem as system cant map code with base quantity in this case, but i just tried for testing,

So it will be highly appreciated if can get some suggestion on how we can achieve it?

    Hi Pratik,

    You have different options:

    1- You can create an LSMW: this is the common tool used for data migration. It is fast, but it is not so common to provide access to LSMW to common users (this will depend on your organization).

    2- You can run CA85N in batches: modifying all the routing with the same base quantity.

    3- You can create a script and make the modification. You can learn how to use the script here: Script Recording & Playback for Dummies

    Kind Regards,

      Hi Mariano,

      I checked both the method to achieve my task, in both case it worked partially and i face same problem also, i have 2 operation in routing, by both method i am not able to get base quantity with reference to operation,

      say i created recording selecting operation 0020, even if i put operation 0010 in excel and note pad ( for LSMW) still my operation 0020 base quantity only get updated,

      Am i missing any thing in here or it is standard behavior of the system?

    I advice you to create LSMW to change the base quantity as you have different base quantity for Operations.

    Refer SAP KBA 1644841 - Is there a BAPI to Update Routings?

    You could use Direct-Input (report RCPTRA02) if you want to change existing routings.

    A sample data file can be created with the report RCPDIRO1.

    Both reports are integrated in transaction SXDB (object 0170), activity 'Direct-Input'.

    Best Regards,
