Recording malfunction in LSMW

Hi wizards,

I am facing a very peculiar problem while trying to upload material master using batch input method. During recording, I have selected all the MRP views (1-4) and entering data in the corresponding fields of the views, but after completion of recording, I found that only selection of MRP 1 and 4 views are getting recorded, while that of MRP 2 and 3 views are not getting recorded, but data entry in all the MRP views are getting recorded. As a result, while uploading the file, there is problem in runnning the batch input session. Please help.

Thanks and regards,

    Check for those materials where update failed, has the corresponding views ( MRP2 / MRP3 ) are opened up in the respective plant with MM01 transaction. If the view is not opened up in MM01 transaction for a plant, there is no question of update of fields on those views.

    And another point is, Recording some updates for Material Master by BDC/LSMW ( Batch Input ) is not suitable. I suggest you either use following:

    *- By LSMW
    Objekt               0020   Materialstamm  
    Methode              0000   (Keine Auswahl)
    Programmname         RMDATIND              
    Programmtyp          D   Direct-Input      


    Best Regards, Murugesh

      Hi Murugesh,

      the checkboxes I am talking about are the ones for selecting views (MRP view, basic data view etc.). Even though I am selecting the views initially, after the recording is over I find that the selected views have become unchecked.

      I have never used the direct input method. If u have any document about how to use the direct input method then please can you forward the same to me at

      Thanks and regards,
