Changing files to use in LSMW tool


I am trying to use LSMW to do Batch Input Processing. I am trying to use the same project, but my text file has changed. However, when I clicked to display the input file and converted file, I still saw the old data. How can I refresh or use another file? I tried changing the file but it is still the same. Did I miss something?

Thank you in advance for your help,

    In LSMW, after you get into the project, you have a bunch of radio-buttons to choose from. Choose the radio-button for 'Specify Files' and then change the file there to your new file. Then in the next radio-button 'Assign Files', assign your new file to the structures. If you don't see these options, use the pushbutton 'Personal Menu' and check the appropriate box.

      Hi Srinivas,

      I did specify a new file and did the assign file again but when I clicked on displaying imported data, I saw the old records. Do you happen to know why this happened and how I can resolve the problem?

      Thank you in advance,
