    For batch interfacing between mainframes and SAP, you will need an ETL tool. SAP's solution here is Data Integrator and Data Quality for data cleansing/scrubbing.

    If you want a messaging infrastructure to send data, then check out SAP NetWeaver PI/XI.

    In both cases you will have to develop the interface loading program (hopefully there is already a BAPI you can use).

    I hope this helps,

      Hi Priya,

      I am doing the samething. In Mainframe, every night, they will place the file in the common place in mainframe. And our SAP needs to pick up the file and process it in SAP.

      How did you apporached this.

      For us, we had a solution like, Using PI, we can pic up the flat file from the mainframe system and then trigger Idocs or LSMW in SAP.

      Please suggest your opinion.

      Thanks & Regards,
