Vendor Conversion

Greetings.

Using LSMW to convert Vendor data. There are quite a number of fields on the screens that are not in the LSMW. For example, the email address.

Is there an alternate technique? Our current plan is make a recording and do a second pass to update the "missing" data.

    The fields that are not available in LSMW vendor conversion are address fields. After the central address management implentation the addresses are maintained seperately.

    There is a BAPI to update the addresses of organizations.

    In LSMW the business object BUS4001. You can use this to update multiple email addresses, telephone numbers ...etc instead of using recording.

    Let me know if this helps. Award points if usefull.

    Hi,

    I did face the same problem for vendor conversion. Instead of Direct input method I choose Batch Input BDC program to upload records. It will be labourious to update the missing fields later. in LSMW you can choose BAtch input Recording method.

    In the recording of XK01(vendor Master) click the "USE CENTRAL ADDRESS MANAGEMENT SYSTEM" check box in the first screen. This activates the address system, and you will be able to c the EMAIL field in the second screen.

    I followed the above mentioned procedure for Vendor Conversion.

    Regards,

    We can do that using recording but when there are multiple entries it is not possible to do it in LSMW.

    We need to go for a custom BDC. Why do things the complicated way when SAP is providing all the programs.

    hi Bob,

    while u r recording the transaction u need to give the data in all the required field then u will get all the fileds in the target structure based upon this target structure u need to create the source structure also

    if the recording is already existing n if u need to add more fields to that do one thing first of all copy the existing project to other name then try to remove the existsing recording n try to record the transaction with all the field including what ever u want to add the fields, its for safe side not to loose the original project, then u will get the target structure with all new fileds included in it

    if u have any further doubts on it let me know

    Regards,

    Naveen

    First, thanks for all the helpful advice.

    I found the BAPI, and I think I have pretty much got things up set up correctly. However, when LSMW does its "Start iDoc Generation" step, it generates an error:

    No partner exists with the name '', type ''

    Does anyone know what this means?
