Dear Gurus,

I have one of the following requirement for my client to Automate Source list generation via ME05....

User will generate all the valid entries in a spread sheet will have all the required data in place on their local drive.

Now the new solution must do the following things in the Tcode ME05

  • 1.Read the spread sheet records…
  • 2.Upload all the records which are in given spread sheet
  • 3.Then delete all other entries of previous source list records
  • 4.And keep only just one entries that is given in the spread sheet.
  • 5. The spread sheet can have multiple records.

I am thinking of proposing to create a BDC... requesting your thoughts and suggestions Please.

Thanks in advance.

Kindly check the documentation on ME05, this should be able to explain its capabilities and answer the question whether it is suitable to fulfill your requirement:

From my point of view it is not.

if its not a BDC then will create a new Z tcode and call a standard BAPI which is ME_MAINTAIN_SOURCE_LIST


if we do this can we change this bapi functionality to deletion process also?

This will also not work, read this excellent blog of Miroslav Oprštěný who has done all investigation before and documented why those things do not work
