RICEF Confusion

Hi gurus,

I have a difficulty assigning the category of one of my program. I have a requirement wherein data from SAP must be selected and then must be posted also in SAP. This occurs on the same server. In which RICEF category should I consider this program?

Thanks,

Andre

Hi,

I forgot to state that this program must be run regularly, weekly or monthly. Will it still fall into the category of Conversion?

Thanks,

Andre

yes it will still be a conversion. frequency of execution is not related to the type of object.

Hi Andre,

According to your question,getting data from sap and posting it in sap can be resolved through Reports and Interfaces.

Reports: Selecting data from sap(from internla table)

Interfaces : sap to non-sap(physical)

It would be better if you can articukate your query.

Thanks

It comes under category C - conversions.

you can use BDC,BAPI or LSMW for that purpose.

Hi Andre,

Transfer of data from one application system to other system within SAP or from SAP to external system ,comes under conversions

You can transfer data through

ALE- IDOCS

BAPI

LSMW

BDC

all these methods comes under conversions

This is an Extension... You are not converting data... the reason why you are getting data from SAP is so that you can add your own logic to process it before posting the data back. So it's adding functionality to an already existing one- Extension.

This is not conversion since you are not dealing with converting data from/to a non-SAP system.
