Uploading Customer Master Extended Address using BAPI method
By Ansumesh Kumar Samal, IBM
Readers of this post can refer to my earlier post Uploading
Customer Master Data using Direct Input Method for detailed level of
explanation of each LSMW steps.
Customer Master Data is the key object in all
Order-To-Cash related operations for an organization. It consists of several
category/types of data among which Customer
Address data is one.
Almost all type of customer master data can be migrated to SAP using Standard
Batch/Direct Input Method (Using
program: RFBIDE00). Even Customer Address can also be migrated using program
standard program RFBIDE00.However there are few specific reasons which lead us
to use different approach for uploading Customer Master Extended Address Data,
There are many additional address fields which are not
available in the structure of standard program RFBIDE00.In an alternative
approach we created one more LSMW object using BAPI method available under LSMW
and used Business Object BUS4001
& Method SAVEREPLICA for address
migration. All detailed steps with screen-shots are given below.
File from Presentation Server
cleansing is performed
are already created in the system through customer master load LSMW for all
configuration data should be available in the system.
conversion should have access to XD01/VD01/FD32 transaction
Customer address load using BAPI method will generate IDOC, and by generated
IDOC data will be posted/migrated to SAP.
shown configuration is required for doing this LSMW object. One port needs to be
created. Destination system details (Partner and Partner Type) needs to be
provided as shown below
Details Step by Step.
: Initial Screen
Create One project ZDEMO_O2C and a sub-project OTC
under that in t-code LSMW
Create a LSMW object 2_CUSTOM_ADDRESS under sub-project
Click on Execute button which will display initial
screen with all the available steps for all techniques. However after first step
based on the techniques used for the LSMW, few steps will be removed.
1: Maintain Object Attributes
Based on the LSMW techniques the below are the final
steps which we need to execute for ADDRESS load.
2: Maintain Source Structures
Create source structure name as CUSTOMER_ ADDRESS for
Structure of Legacy data customer address respectively.
3: Maintain Source Fields
Created all source fields under above Source Structure.
And one important point here i.e. field sequence under the source structure
should be created in the same sequence what it is given by the customer in the
flat file. Click here for
the file format. Before uploading we saved the XLS file into TXT format and
then passed to the LSMW object.
