    There are a number of factors you need to look at first. These include:

    1. What type of data are you migrating? I.e. ArchiveLink, DMS or Data Archiving

    2. What is the method for the current storage. I.e. RFC or HTTP. If its HTTP its much easier, if its RFC, then there is more work to be done to convert from RFC to HTTP.

    From there, you can identify what method of migration needs to be assigned, what problems or programs need to be written to help with the migration. I.e. to verify after the migration that all the documents are there because sometimes the migration programs don't always run correctly.

    Migration can be simple in some cases, but depending on your current scenario, you may encounter more problems than you originally planned on and the process can be complex.

      Hi Athol Hill,

      I have seen your post which matches my requirement.

      As per the questions which you have asked in the post ....

      1. What type of data are you migrating? I.e. ArchiveLink, DMS or Data Archiving

      Answer: We are migrating the DMS data which may contain documents(any type) and Imaging.

      2. What is the method for the current storage. I.e. RFC or HTTP. If its HTTP its much easier, if its RFC, then there is more work to be done to convert from RFC to HTTP.

      Answer: Current Storage method is HTTP.

      Our requirement is 'Migrating of the existing data sources from E-Library, File Server and Auto CAD server(present Client third part servers) to the SAP Content repository(Content server).

      Could you help me a sample program or guide lines how can start coding with some steps since i am not getting how and where to start the code.

      Requirement was to automate the migration process by creating a Custom Program.

      Thanks
