Sales Documents Upload using Standard Direct Input Program in LSMW

Hello SCN members,

We all have faced the prospect of uploading Sales Documents  into SAP. The  most common approach to do so is via a BDC program. The LSMW recording  cannot be preferred if the order has multiple line items. More so, if the number of line items are not fixed.

In such cases, we can use the Direct Input Program  option in LSMW.  SAP has made available standard Direct Input programs for uploading a variety of Documents, viz Sales Documents,  Material Movement Documents,  Financial Accounting Docs.

In the first step of  LSMW, ie In Object Attributes, select Standard batch / Direct Input Option.

Then  you can select 0090 as  object and 0000 as method,

Automatically  RVINVB10 program gets selected.

Using this Program, you can finish  the remaining regular steps of the LSMW.

In Specify Files step, you will be asked to provide a logical path and a Logical File name.

These can be created in Tcode : FILE.

Double click on the Converted data file and assign the logical Path and Logical File name.

Note: The logical File should have the phuysical file  of the same name as the converted data file (*.lsmw.conv)

Have Created a detailed Document with all steps,  Kindly find the link to the same ,

Do share your comments and questions if you have faced any problems with this Direct Input program.

      why didn't you include this part into your document?

      I actually see not much sense in creating a document and then creating a blog to promote the document.

      Hello Jurgen,

      I had read the rules of engagement with the comments  below it before embedding the link in blog in good faith.

      Just to clarify:

      My Objective  in blog was a short read for those who already are well versed with LSMW  hence only  mentioning the  main points.

      On other hand, My Document is 20 Pages long (in MS Word)  covering many more nuances of LSMW, so  for those who dont have time or get turned off  by long documents, I created the blog, which stressed only on the main point of direct input program.

      And that part is already  included in  Document.

      My  only intention in giving the link was if anybody tried this direct input and got stuck with issue, they can refer to the document which had step by step details.

      I hope I could clarify my intentions,

      I agree with Jurgen.  You should have clubbed both these into one blog.  Nevertheless, it is a good documentation for many.  Keep it up.
