Hi Waman,

LSMW has more option/functionality to load data.. whereas CATT allows screen recording and loading data from file.. Data mapping/translation/routines etc. not possible with CATT..

Hope this helps..

Hi Vaman,

To answer 'c'.. It is better to go in for lSMW than the traditional BDCs.. that way you need not worry about any screen chnages that SAP might make from time to time...
