SAP Substance WorkBench


I have certain new RealSubstances. For which identifiers,Auth Group, Restrictions and several Characteristics values needs to be uploaded.

Is there any procedure to do mass upload of substances to SAP .

I tried using CG33 but I found an option as 'Search Specification Type'(search through identifiers or subid).

So to my knowledge it is not possible to upload new substances using this transaction as the realsubstances is new one.

Is there any other way to perform mass upload.

Please share your ideas on this.

    Dear Vignesh

    you "misinterpret" CG33 in this case. CG33 does have "suboptions". This option:

    "option as 'Search Specification Type'(search through identifiers or subid)." is part of the suboptions.

    The meaning is "simple". Using CG33 you can not only create new specs but you can update them. This option is used e.g. to identify (high level explanation) the specification which should be updated or it is used to find a specification etc.


    Chapter: "Specification Import Control" (and the othere chapters may be) to get a "better" understanding how to do the import.

    To summerize: CG33 can be used to create new specificaiotns or to update them

    To "only" update an existing specification you could use the "EH&S OCC" (Open Content Connector) as well; main intention of this tool is to perform an upload of regulatory data; but you can (in theory) use the tool to update the "flash point" etc. as well.

    Hope that this helps.

      Hi Everyone,

      I have successfully created mass substances through load file generated using Data Editor. The only mistake I did was I failed to select "Spec Keyint no.rng" flag. Which is essential to select for creation of new substances.

      Thank you all,
