LSMW - Display Converted data does not show Field Text


I was doing LSMW to upload data using IW21 against Reference Notifications.

We have added fields under the User Status head in IW21 as per screen shot below:


the fields Equipment Hand Over and Equipment Take back Time fields above are custom fields i.e Z fields showing data values also.

During the step Field Mapping and Conversion Rules it shows all the fields and especially the above two fields as ZZEHT and ZZETBT but not showing their Field names below in front of the yellow pencil icon:

When i made the excel file it shows something like this

Again in above screen Field names of both fields are missing.

In display Conversion data it shows something like this

Once i have completed all steps and new Notification is generated without errors, the data from these two fields are not copied and shows blank.

This is my main concern, any ideas?

    • Hi,

      When I specify values in excel file then it works fine and the values are uploaded.

      It does not work when i want to copy old values from Old Notification.

      As for checking of attribute as Character or Numeric, I'll contact Technical team.

    Hello Faisal,

    please follow the below steps to get the field names in the display conversion/field mapping step.

    Step 1: Go to the corresponding recording for the lsmw.

    Step 2: find out the field, for which you would like to have field name.(Ex:"ZZEHT").

    Step 3: once you find the field name, double click on it, there you will get below three text boxes.

                 (i ) Field name, (ii) Field Discription (iii) Field Value.

    Step 4: Type the field name and field Description for the corresponding text boxes and remove the value from third column to avoid wrong data updation, when you try to pass blank for the field from the load file.

    step 5: Now save the recoding and come to field mapping or conversion rules step and see now, you must get the field names.
