    LSMW is usually used to upload lot of data from a legacy sytem to te SAP system.

    These are actually tools to aid the transfer of huge amount of data durng upgrades etc...

    BDC are also usefull in the same manner. these are small routines written by ABAPers to upload data into SAP system.

    You can also use CATT scripts for this. By this you can record the transactions and a BDC is automatically created.

    Hope this clears your doubt.

    Hi Basha,

    We cannot say that LSMW and BDC are mandatory for SD.

    LSMW is actually a tool to upload data into SAP. BDC is also a program which can be used for the same purpose.But LSMW is not available with the earlier versions of SAP. Ex: versions 3.1H and 3.1I.BDC was used most of the times.LSMW has got more advantages than BDC in terms of less coding,easy to use etc.

    Hope this helps.

    Please reward if useful.

    Thanks,

    Srinivasa
