Migration of Historical Orders

0 Kudos

Hi,

There is a requirement from Client to Migrate Historical orders to SAP...

Which methodology can be used???

I had a look at LSMW by using standard BAPI 'BAPI_ALM_ORDER_MAINTAIN'...

The issue which we face here is 'Refernce date' is not available in the above BAPI, but it is mandatory field for Creating

Historical orders( IW61 transaction)...

If we use Recording, we face some challenges when migrating Historical orders with Multiple Operations

Could you please suggest which is the best way to migrate Historical orders in SAP???

Quick response will be much appreciated....

Regards,

Karthik

Hi,

It is better to consider creating a Notification for capturing History, unleass there is a compelling business reason to create an order to capture a history, as Order is a tool to plan and execute a repair with resource and cost planning.

Hi Karthik,

You can try use exit IBAPI_ALM_ORD_MODIFY.

BAPI_ALM_ORDER_MAINTAIN contains extension_in table parameter. You can pass reference date and in the above exit, try to populate appropriate order in lt_caufvd and lt_caufvd_up. I haven't tried it myself. But it's worth giving a shot.

Best Regards,

Hello,

I think you should go for the BDC Upload Method which handle "n" of Operation and Refrence date issue by writing the code in the BDC programming after Recording via SHDB.LSMW Recording Method having some restriction for controlling Number of Operations and Its component assignmnet also for Upload of Long Text for Operations.
