    Hi Sid ,

    The method you want to select depends on the amount of data you want to upload .

    If you have a lot of data then i would prefer LSMW , for not so large BDC and very small volume of data the other methos.

    Regards

    Arun

    hi,

    use of methods depending upon amount:

    if you have run time validation while updating the data into SAP R/3 Transaction,then use BDC Call Transaction.

    example : when you load the data into Sales order then you need to load the into Header text of sales order.

    for this ,you have to use Update Mode 'S'.

    if it is online update and if you small amount of data ,then prefer this one

    2. If you have huge amount of data and then prefer Session Method.

    we have one more advantage in session method...

    suppose file has 1,00,000 records and the if you use all the records at time,then you will get short dump like system time exceed .

    then you can split the each 10,000 records into one session and will process.

    3. Direct Input method : we prefer this method only few Transaction ,

    this will not applicable to when system has customer fields .

    Depends on your requirement..

    For large data use LSMW.

    For multiple uploads and where user validation is needed use BDC

    For Njoy transactions use BAPI
