Creating a Work List (AR01) for assets massive modification in the backgrou

Hi, I want no know how can I create a work pool (tx AR01) for assets master data massive modification but without executing the tx online. Problem is I have to modify a lot of assests so I prefer to execute it in the background. But if I don't execut it online I don't know how to create it.

thanks

    Hi Matias,

    Using worklist AR01 for mass changes has a limitation. I guess it works only for 999 assets at a time. And I feel that executing online is better way to do that.

    Creating the worklist is just providing the data to the program. Before that you will have to create substitution in Asset accounting giving your logic. You can define substitution for asset creation, master data changes and automatic transfers. The transaction is OA02.

    After you have created the substitution, go to AR01 and make a selection of assets to be changed. In the next screen, click on 'Create worklist' icon (CtrlShiftF8). In the pop up screen you will have to enter the worklist name and select the task viz. Change asset w/o dialog (bulk change) in your case.

    When you click on the check mark, the system will ask you for the substitution. Here enter the substitution you previously created. You can also create the susbtitution form that screen itself, but I did not suggest that since in your production systems you won't be able to do that. Once you hit enter, the worklist will be saved and then worklist number generated.

    To execute the worklist, you will have to go to AR31. here enter the worklist number and other details and hit execute. In the next screen, click on the 'Release worklist' flag (Shift+F10). Keep refreshing the worklist process. The system will do the changes in background and when the worklist is processed, it will give you error/warning/info details.

    I hope this helps you. Warm regards,

    Vishal
