LSMW – Task List Creation with 5 level input file using Batch Input
Creation of Task List using LSMW Batch Input with 1 input file having 5 level Structure data.
Fields in the structures:
Note: 1) All these 5 rows generate 1 Task list.
2) There can contain multiple Operations (level2) for each Header (Level1) in the input file.
3) There can be multiple Text Lines (Level3), Components (Level4), and Packages (Level5) for
each Operation (Level2).
Input File Format:
The first Column is the Unique Identifier, which we need to maintain at the source field level for correct mapping.
Step1: Maintain Object Attributes
We have Batch Input for the Task List Creation in the LSMW.
Data Transfer Object: 0490
Data Transfer Method: B (Batch Input)
Step 2: Maintain Source Structures
Maintain Source Structures as per the Hierarchy.
Create a Header File Structure. Add Operation as the child Node (Next Level) to Header.
Add Long Text, Components, Packages structures as the child node (Next level) to Operations.
But all these three at same level
Step3: Maintain Source Fields
Maintain a Unique Identifier “RECORDNAME” in each structure.
Double Click the RECORDNAME Field and fill the identifying Field Content with some Unique Value.
Similarly, do this for all the Identifying fields in each structure. The same can be screen in the screenshots.
Step4: Maintain Structure Relations
Map the structures respectively.
Step5: Maintain Field Mapping and Conversion Rules
Go to Menu Bar -> Extras -> Auto Field Mappings.
This will map the fields in our Source structures to the corresponding fields the Target Structures.
Similarly, all the fields will be mapped accordingly. It will be better to cross check.
Step6: Maintain Fixed Values, Translations, User-Defined Routines
User Defined Routines or Values can be maintained at this step.
Step7: Specify Files
At this step, specify the input file present at the Presentation Server.
Step8: Assign Files
Assign the input file to each structure applicable as shown below
As we have single input file, assign the same to all the structures applicable.
Step9: Read Data
At this Step, the data in the input file will be read and stored in the Structures.
Step10: Display Read Data
Step11: Convert Data
The data read from the input file, will be converted as the rules we provide in the field mapping stage.
Ex: Here, Conversion Exit was used was for Equipment Number. This conversion will be executed at this stage.
Step12: Display Converted Data
The data converted, can be seen at this step.
Step13: Create Batch Input Session
This step will create the Batch Session. We need to provide the Session Name at this step.
Provide the Session Name. Delete the Deletion indicator, if you want to keep the session even after processing.
Step14: Run Batch Input Session
This will take you to SM35. You can process the session according to your requirement.
Hope this might be helpful…!
