Data migration Flat File Tool
Previosly I have demonstrated the IBIP tool to support data migration using flat file in the EAM area
I this Blog I will show simple way to Utilized cross application SAP standard direct/batch programs for by export data from within Microsoft Excel to Flat text files in the required format by SAP programs
as directed by SAP help :”You can use the recording function to create a new object (or a new “import method”) if neither a standard batch input program nor a standard direct input program nor the BAPI/IDoc method is available for a data object.”
Download here excel VBA based spreadsheet (developed by Ziv Marcovich) which generates flat files ready to be uploaded to SAP Standard Direct/Batch Input programs ,The main advantage is the Usage in 1 Excel source file also for multi structures is can save development of designated ABAP programs which writes data to a sequential file in the format required by the ABAP programs.
EXEMPLE :Test case Exemple – BOM create
STEP 1 - Maintain Logical File settings
Lets look at the BOM data migration exemple - the fflat file should be placed in the Application server , therefore Goto Transaction FILE ( This step is required just for create BOM )
Maintain in the Physical name : BOM_CREATE
STEP 2 - Create template - BOM Exemple
Create template using structures (BGR00,BICSK,BICSP..) – choose just the relevant fields .
STEP 3 - Generate Flat File
STEP 4 – Upload the flat file to the application servere
STEP 5 – Run the SAP data migration program via SE38
