Legacy asset conversion


Thanks for reading the thread.

We are working on the LSMW for the legacy asset conversion. I have created a LSMW and the requirement is that the client have long text for each of the asset in legacy system which should also be convereted to SAP.

I could not find any field in BALTD or BALTB for mapping the long text.

Can any one help me find out how the long text will be loaded in to SAP.

Thanks for help

    When you create the LSMW with recording select the button longtext.

      You can't upload longtext for fixed asset using LSMW BI or DI.

      You have to load it seperately.

      What I would like to know if you are able to upload BaltB records. Let me know!

      The solution comes from Sipra Jain see link below


      Solution according to Sipra Jain

      To transfer long texts, there are two possibilities:

       Direct input program /SAPDMC/SAP_LSMW_IMPORT_TEXTS (object 0001, method 0001); this object is not available in the standard program. To make it available, run the following program: /SAPDMC/SAP_LSMW_SXDA_TEXTS

       Direct input program RSTXLITF (object 2000, method 0000); to be able to use this object, you have to download the transport from SAPNET ( and import it into your system

      9.1 Long Texts in the R/3 System

      Long texts (texts covering more than one line) are stored in a text pool in R/3. The key of a long text is composed of four parts:

      Key field Meaning Example Length Check table

      OBJECT Application object AUFK = Order texts 10 TTXOB, TTXOT

      ID Text ID Object AUFK

      • Id KOPF = Order header text

      • Id POSN = Order item text

      • Id RMEL = Order confirmation text 4 TTXID, TTXIT

      NAME Actual text key Order number 70 (none)

      SPRAS Language Text language 1-2 T002

      Good Luck
