    Hi

    the following is the step wise procedure for LSMW.. i have posted the same in the forum two days back also

    LEGACY SYSTEM MIGRATION WORKBENCH (LSMW)

    LSMW is a collection of projects (SAP). Project is a collection of subprojects. Subproject is a collection of objects.

    Steps:

    Maintain object attributes: In this step we assign transaction code for the LSMW using a records object.

    Maintain source structures: In this step we need to define an internal table for getting data from flat files into SAP application.

    Maintain source files: In this step we need to add fields for the structure created in step2.

    Maintain structure relations: n this step SAP generates a relation between the created internal table (ITAB) and the recording object

    Maintain field mapping & Conversion Rules: In this step we need to generate the relationship between the internal table and recording object field.

    Maintain Field Values: This is optional step for LSMW. We can use the SAP generated default values.

    Specify Files: In this step we specify the file to be extracted for BDC processing using LSMW

    Assign Files: In this step SAP generates the relation between the Flat File assigned in Step7 and internal table defined in Step2.

    Import Data: In this step SAP Reads the data from assigned file into ITAB (internal table) internally SAP creates a file with extension as ……….. .lsmw.read.

    10. Display Import Data: Data in ITAB will be displayed as Report in this step. Report data will be in yellow color as data is in between source and recording objects.

    11. Convert Data: In this step data will move from table to recording object. Internally SAP transfers the data from “LSMW.Read” file into “LSMW.Conv:. Data in this file is ready for populating data into BDC session object.

    12. Display Converted Data: Data in Recording object will be displayed as report in this step. Here Report should be in green color.

    13. Create Batch Input Session: Based on Recording object data SAP creates a session object and transfers the data into the session object.

    4. Run Batch Inpurt Session: Opens “SM35” transaction Code to Process BDC session object.

    Hope it helps u... if helpful assign points

    Hi Gayatri,

    LSMW is a procedure to upload data from legacy environment. In fact, functional people are using it through Batch Input Method, which is a 14 steps mechanism.

    In the 14 steps, you have to create project, sub project etc. You have to record one document / master data creation by using necessary transaction.

    You have to note down the fields and you have to find the technical names to those fields. You have to arrange your uploading data in accordance with your recording.

    You have to upload that file.

    Just it is a synopsis of LSMW.

    ALL THE BEST

    Note: If answer is satisfied, please reward points.

    hi

    LSMW means Legacy System Migragtion Workbench.

    This is used for uploading the data from Non- SAP system to SAP system.

    For uploading we can follow 4 methods in LSMW

    1. Objective method

    2. Recording methd

    3. BAPI

    4.IDOC

    With the use of any one of the above method, we can record in SAP System.

    For Recording Go to TC LSMW

    enter Project, Sub Project, Object mehod name and execute, then it shows LSMW upload screen

    *******

    1. TCode : LSMW.

    2. Enter Project name, sub project name and object name.

    Execute.

    3. Maintain object attributes.

    Execute

    select Batch Input recording

    goto->Recording overview

    create

    recording name.

    enter transaction code (say FK01)

    start recording

    do recording as per ur choice.

    save + back.

    enter recording name in lsmw screen.

    save + back

    Now there will be 14 steps.

    2. MAINTAIN SOURCE STRUCTURES.

    Here you have to enter the name of internal table.

    display change

    create

    save + back

    3. MAINTAIN SOURCE FIELDS.

    display change

    select structure

    source_fields->copy fields.

    a dialogue window will come .

    select -> from data file

    apply source fields

    enter No. of fields

    length of fields

    attach file

    save + back

    4. MAINTAIN STRUCTURE RELATIONS

    display change

    save + back

    5. MAINTAN FIELD MAPPING & CONVERSION RULE

    display change

    click on source field, select exact field from structue and enter

    repeat these steps for all fields.

    save+back

    6. MAINTAIN FIXED VALUES, TRANSACTION, USER DEFINED

    execute

    save + back

    7. SPECIFY FILES.

    display change

    click on legacy data

    attah flat file

    give description

    select tabulatore

    enter

    save + back

    8. ASSIGN FILE

    execute

    display change

    save + back

    9. IMPORT DATA.

    execute

    display change

    save + back

    10. DISPLAY IMPORTED DATA

    enter ok, it willl show records only.

    back

    11. CONVERT DATA

    execute

    display change

    save + back

    12. DISPLAY CONVERTED DATA

    execute

    display change

    save + back

    13. CREATE BATCH INPUT SESSION

    tick keep batch input folder

    F8

    back

    14. RUN BATCH INPUT SESSION.

    sm35 will come

    Object name will be shown here

    select object & process

    *************

    you can search sdn forum you can get lsmw document with screenshot...

    hopeful this..

    regards
