REFX data conversion

Hi,

would have good advises for starting to use REFX?

In our case the company has been using different legacy systems to handle real estate processes.

When starting to use REFX, what is the best practise to convert REFX contracts?

E.g lease-in contracts have originally started year 2004, with certain condition types linked to index series. During the years the contract condtions have been updated according to index changes (with some exceptions).

Should the currect situation e.g. 2011 condition amounts / the original conditions / both be converted into SAP?

Please give some advises what to consider!

Thanks for all comments,

Sonja

    Hi,

    I would advise you to start uploading the data from 2011 onwards rather than the past data.

    The past data will be maintained in the Legacy system only.

    This will reduce the time to upload large amounts of data into SAP system thus the errors in data handling.

    For data conversion in RE-FX, you need to use BAPI's.

    Please, refer to OSS notes 828160 and 443311.

    There are also a lot of OSS notes on specific queries.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi,

    It looks like you have a good reason to start working with RE-FX. This way you will maintain all the RE data in one system instead of different legacy systems.

    The easiest way to do the migration is by using LSMW. In this LSMW you will have to choose for the BAPI methods to be able to upload the data with Idocs. This works fine. We did at the end of 2010 a migration of 85.000 rental objects with fewer business entities, buildings and the same amount of contracts.

    When migrating the contracts you will have to keep all the original information in SAP. So you start the contract in 2004. Then it is also possible to migrate the conditions from the contract start date. For this purpose SAP has two fields to be able to start posting these conditions with go-live. These are the first posting from (first date for posting in SAP) and the cash flow date (from this date SAP builds the cash flow). In this way the first posting date can be 01-01-2012 and the cash flow date 01-01-2010. Now it is possible to post also backdated changes between 2010 and 2012. SAP knows the original posting is made in a legacy system and will only post the difference.

    I hope this answer will help you to decide what is best for you.

    Good luck,

    Jeroen
