LSMW Upload

Hi All,

I am trying to upload BOM (Bill of material) data using LSMW standard progarm.

Every thing is done correctly, like importing, mapping, converting etc. But when i try to create a batch input session using LSMW standard radio button, it is asking for the 'Logical File name'. I tried to give the file name that got when i tried to read the converted data but it terminated saying that no physical path found.

When i tried to give the physical path and file name, it is asking for the logical path.

Please help as what can be entered in the logical file name. Or do we have to create a new logical file and put in some data there.

I have done many data uploads for cust master, GL master, material master, but it never asked for the logical file name in the step 'Create Batch Input Session'.

Its urgent.

Thanks,

NC

    Hi,

    Very known situation for me. I think it is little bug in LSMW (or hidden feature if you like), but there is one little workaround for that.

    You just put any, not used logical file name in your file definition step. LSMW will create this logical file byself und will use when is needed, but you just forget about it in future. Don't forget to recreate this file, when you move your LSMW to test and production systems, it is not created automaticaly there.

    Hi NC,

    Logical filenames and file paths are maintained via transaction <b>FILE</b>.

    Within this transaction you simply enter the file name and path details to the relevant directories and paths on the operating system where the data file is stored (just look at some of the entries that have been entered already and copy the relevant ones - just change some of the values like the name of the file, to what you need).

    SAP then uses this information to retrieve the correct file for the upload of data during the dataload.

    I hope this helps.

    Little addition to previous post.

    I noticed, that this bug started just with recent version of LSMW. I'm using this tool since 2000 and I start to get problems only this year.
