Overview

The S/4HANA Migration Cockpit is available from S/4HANA Release 1610 in the OnPremise Version.

As it is the first Version, i don’t have too much expectations, but i am sure we will see very interesting updates in the future.

Basically, it is a Web Based Tools to migrate Legacy Data into S/4HANA. It allows to Download predefined Excel Sheet-Templates, so you can “easily” extract legacy data into this format and upload in S/4HANA by using the Migration Cockpit. Basic Mapping Functionality is provided (e.g. Map Unit of Measure Codes and so on) but don’t expect too much here yet.

Target group seems to be smaller and medium businesses (SMB). The handling of the Import Process and Validations are made very easy (“cloud style”)

To Import the Data, the SAP Standard BAPIs are used. There is an error Log provided with information on Warnings or Errors.

As there is already a number of Standard Objects Available (see below)

Nice: Sample Migration Templates (Excel Examples)

(currently for S/4HANA Cloud only but still helpful)

 

FAQ Note on Migration Cockpit

https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2537549

 

 

Migration Process

In the first Screen you can create or open a Migration Project.

 

then you can activate one or multiple migration objects

 

Now Open the Migration Object

you can look at the documentation of the migration object

you can Download an Excel Template.

 

Now fill the Excel with you data

 

and Upload into the Migration Cockpit

 

select and activate the File

 

now start Transfer (migrate to S/4 Hana):

First the Data is validated

 

when finished 100 %, click on close

now you can see the notifications (warnings/error messages):

Choose next to perform the Value Mappings (Convert Values)

 

if a value from the excel sheet is found for the first time, you have to confirm or add a value mapping:

enter a new Value (EV_xxx) and/or click on confirm

 

now click on next for the simulation and then next for the import (same procedure as validation)

 

all actions are performed in background (as a batch-job/SM37), but you can wait until process is finished 100 % and then immediately see the results or let it run in background and come back later.

 

 

Excel Format

The Excel Templates are in XML Format

it looks like this

you can find several documentations in the internet:

https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/Snippets/XML+TAGS+simplifies+Excel+Download

 

i faced problems with ‘SPACE’ for empty columns, they should be <null> otherwise the ss:Index gets confused and the Values are linked to the wrong columns when importing into the migration cockpit, even if they are in correct order

 

Import Processing

It helps if you are familiar with the Standard BAPI Structures and SAP Input Data (for example how to create a material master)

Abap Skills are not required, but ABAP Debugging skills are useful for the Root Cause Analysis in cases where the Error Log isn’t enough.

 

 

The BAPI used for the Data Inport can be found in Transaction LTMOM

you can also see how the input fields are mapped.

currently i was not able to change the standard mappings, i can only add customer fields.

 

you can set an external Breakpoint (external as the import is always performed by a batch job)

here you can also save the data (after mapping/conversion) as testdata for SE37 (right click on toolbox)  if you need to do some troubleshooting

 

in some cases i added an ‘implicit enhancement’ at begin of function (ABAP Enhancement Concept) in the importing BAPI to change the conversion.

(quick and dirty?)

 

Generated ABAP Objects

The Migration Cockpit generates ABAP Function Modules for the Conversion and the Import.

These can be Debugged (or maybe even “enhanced”?)

if you come from LSMW or other ABAP Migration Tools you will find yourself familiar shortly.

further Tips

Structure XXXX: Number of recipient records generated 0000000000 (or less than in input file)

reason:

the Migration Cockpit is storing all created objects in Table DMC_FM_RESTART, so if your object number, for example material number, is in this table, it will be skipped and not imported again.

you can delete the entry with transaction code se16

 

 

also if a job with the name /1LT/LOAD… is scheduled or already running, the import will not start

(but shows no error message)

verify with SE37

Check from ABAP Coding

START_DATA_LOAD (CL_DMC_WDA_MIG_CONTR) CHECK cl_dmc_act_rec=>get_active_and_scheduled_jobs( iv_ext_id        = lv_ext_id
iv_activity_type = cl_dmc_act_rec=>…

    Hi All

    we are migrating Material Master and getting the error message as :

    There are at two places where we update the description one in Basic Data and another in Material Description tab in excel template.  Both tabs we have updated the same name of material and getting the above error.

     

    Please could you help to resolve the issue.

      You only put material descriptions on the “Material Descriptions” tab that are in a different language than those you put on the “Basic Data” tab.  If you’re creating materials with only one language you don’t need to put anything on the “Material Descriptions” tab.

    Hello All,

     

    I am using LTMC for Legacy Data Migration but while uploading i am unable to understand what is

    the posting logic that the system is using as there is no field of posting key i am unable to identify

    the which Gl account is getting debited & which is getting credited. Request you to help on the same

    ASAP basis.

    Hello Jörg,

     

    first of all thanks to this exciting BLOG.

    We are now building migration scenarios on  S/4HANA Release 1610 on premise.

    I started with a moigration example on master material.

    I could start the MC via LTMC.

    Then I created an Project and sub project and used the material master migration object: Migration of Materials (FILE2S4).

    I could download the template file and I tried to upload the file wit data for migration an wanted to start migration.

    But then something went wrong.

    Now I can start the LTMC again, but I always jump into one screen, where I couldn’t jump or move to anywhere because of missing dat:

    So I can’t do anthing. I checked the tables: DMC_FM_RESTART and the jobs with name /1LT/*, but there are no entries.

    Could you please help me, because the call of the transaction LTMC leads me to this screen, where I didn’t get any clue, what I can do to restart the migration project from the scratch. In LSMW you always could do this without problems.

    I stucked on this screen and can’t us the cockpit any longer.

    Could you please help me ?

      Hi Frank, The Screenshot looks really very empty, this is not a normal behaviour, what FPS Patch Level is you 1610?

      I think you can create a new Migration Project and then it should be filled again (you can upload you template here)

      regards

        Hello Jörg,

        thanks to your fast answer.

        I think we are using the Patch Level 01 (01 (02/2017) FP).

         

        My problem is: if start the LTMC, I only see the screen above and I can not move to anywhere else. I am stucked.

        Do you have an clue, what I can I do to restart an new migration project ?

        Thank you and best regards

            Hello Sybille,

            thanks a lot for your help.

            Yes this has helped.

            But I couldn’t go on with the original user.

            Only with the new user I could start the LTMC in a proper mode.

            On the old user the same behaviour remains (??? do you have any reason for this ???)

            Thank you and best regards

              Hi,

               

              please check if there are dumps in S4 system like in oss note 2393469

               

              You could try to delete user parameters in netweaver.

              Activate service wd_analyze_config_user in SICF and test it. Select entries for your original not working user id.

               

              If tehre are entries, delete them and try LTMC again.

               

              BR,

              Lars.

              Hi Frank,

              You can go to personalization and select the Standard view, it will solve your problem for the current user.

               

              Best Regards,

    We are working on a greenfield migration to S/4HANA, currently focusing on Cost Centers and Profit Centers.

    In the Migration Cockpit, the documentation for Cost Centers mentions:

    Business objects that must already be entered or migrated in the system:

    ##Cost center groups

    However, I don’t see any Migration object for Cost Center Groups or Profit Center Groups.
    As Master Data, these are also not available as BC Sets.

    What do you recommend for the migration of hierarchies like Cost Center Groups and Profit Center Groups?

    Hello everyone.
    
    we are starting an implementation project of S/4HANA 1709.
    
    Use transaction LTMC to create a project in Migration Cockpit, the tool requests a field "View Standard", 
    which has two options. (Which of the options should I select)
    
    
    
    For this example, I selected "On-premise - Enterprise Management scope" (in another example I selected "Customer View" 
    and I have the same error that I am going to mention).
    
    Then, I use the LTMOM transaction to create a migration object that is generated successfully (following the steps described 
    in the "Creating a New Migration Object"  documentation)
    
    
    
    When I return to LTMC and try to download the template of this new migration object, it generates the following error:
    
    
    
    I do not know which view it refers to, I do not know which view I should activate?
    
    
    On the next LTMOM screen,
    
    
    
    Which option should I select? have that list of options something to do with the error that is being generated when 
    downloading the template of the generated migration object?
    
    
    Can you help me please.

    Thank you.

      Hi Luz Mery,

      I had the same problem two weeks ago and i have passed that error by selecting the customer view if i am going to use a customized Migration object (I created it ) and the On Premise when i was using standard Object (Created by SAP)  but i am not sure if this is the right procedure.

      What i have been unable to find out is where to write a code if i want to get a field from external table for example or take the input and perform on it any kind of Mathematical function , Does anyone have any idea ?

      when you download the template where they have provided standard field and if you want more field then there is + icon you can add those and sane need to extend in excel sheet template. then try to upload and share the result with us.

    Hi All,

    I was trying to post Customer data into S/4 HANA using Migration cockpit. Whenever i am posting data with “sales data” it is giving an error named “system error occurs while calling functional module in target systems”.

    Without sales data we are able to post it successfully.

    Please help us to solve this.

    it was pretty most helpful document to whom which want to be migrated into ECC to S/4HANA 1610 & latest version 1709.

    author have explored deep the topic where abap will come into the picture.

    what list of objects are including into S/4HANA 1709 Release.

    based on instruction given in this blog we have tested the migration scenario ECC to S/4HANA by sandbox system without issue.

    so once again want to say its more helpful blog as this is new technology which is in demand as per my information SAP has achieved the milestone as SAP done migration for approx. 1000 customer.

    Hi,

    I am creating a migration object using LTMOM (S/4HANA 1709) , I follow all the recommended steps. When assigning the conversion rules, I get an error when entering a standard rule, for example CVT_MATKL.

    If I use the search help to select some, the system does not display all the rules, just some

    Does anyone have any ideas

    Thanks

    Good afternoon,

    I’d like to comment an issue that I’m facing since yesterday. I created a Migration Object in LTMOM transaction for BAPI: BAPI_QPGR_SAVEREPLICA. I know that already exists one for it, but I wanted to create a new one to understand a little bit more how to map source and target structures.

    I stablished a debug to see all the mappings and everything was fine in LTMC for my first load; however if I try to load new data within a new excel template, in debug I see the program is taking the values of the first load and no respect the new ones. What can I do to resolve this? There’s something I’m missing in LTMOM?

    I also could see that the loop sentence that assign values for BAPI use the sentence IMPORT…FROM DATA BUFFER.

    I aprecciate your support.

    Hi everyone,

    first of all let me mention we are using several objects in LTMC already and from our pov it seems to be handy whereas the performance of the WD is the most negative experiance we’ld like to share. The open SAP course was very helpful as well as your link collection in here. Thanks for this easy entrance.

    We wonder if there are any plans known if the object of “master recipe” / C201 is going to be considered soon? In current 1709 version we could not find any.
    The solution of colleagues might have been used LSMW using “BUS1194” shouldn’t be appropriated any more and the data model changed in simplification as well (2267863).

    So if I did not miss any alternative, you may add it on a OP-List.

    Thanks,

    Dirk

    Hi,

    I am having problems with loading the Fixed Assets file of the LTMC


    I complete the values of Cumulated Acquisition Value and Accumulated Ordinary depreciation as follows:

     

     

    When I upload the file in the LTMC, I get the following errors:

     

    Correction to ordinary dep. greater than acc. dep. in area 01

    Message no. AA634

    Asset affected:

    Diagnosis

    The line item cannot be posted, since the correction to ordinary depreciation in area 01 exceeds the cumulative ordinary depreciation.

    The error can occur during a transfer, a write-up, or post-capitalization.

    Procedure

    Correct your entry.

     

    I also get errors in other areas of valuation that were not loaded:

     

    Correction to ordinary dep. greater than acc. dep. in area 31

    Message no. AA634

    Asset affected:

    Diagnosis

    The line item cannot be posted, since the correction to ordinary depreciation in area 31 exceeds the cumulative ordinary depreciation.

    Could someone send me an example of asset loading excel?

    Thanks!

    Ignacio

    Hi Jorg,

    Firstly thanks for such an informative blog.

    @Jorg and others:

    I need your help with migration object:”Material-extend exiting record to new org level”.

    We are trying to extend the already existing material to sales org views.

    We have created the xml file with material number and sales view details.

    We get error that”Material does not exist in Sales Org and distribution Channel”

    Also we are mantaining the tax classification for both the countries which is required in material master but still it throws error that  tax classification is already mantained for one country, when we remove the entry of it from xml file it throws error that tax classification is insufficiently mantianed.

    Can you show us an example to extend the material to sales view that ud be helpful with the example xml file.

    Regards
