Former Member

Dear all,

I encountered an error when using "Batch Input Recording" way in LSMW,which is as follows:

I have recorded the transaction MM01 and the source structure and data mapping.When dealing

with "Specify Files",the error comes out with message

--> "File Name 'Converted Data':Max.45 Characters:Remaining saved".

and the subsequent steps cannot be maintained due to the error.

Hi Alex,

Its a simple thing... in the specirfy file step... you have to give the file path and name for the conversion data file name. There you specify the file name along with the path upto 45 charecters. Thats it ... you solve your prob....

just doublet cliek on the convert data file name option below ... and specify the file name something like C:\test.txt

This file will be used to hold the data after the convert data step is executed... so u an give the file name along with the path below 45 chars....

Alex,

The name of file for Converted data is a system generated combination of your Project subproject and object followed by lsmw.conv as Project_Subproject_Object.lsmw.conv

System has set a limit of a maximum of 45 characters. It the file name exceeds 45 characters, the system will throw the error.

Just rename the file such that it is with in the 45 charcter limit....you will be fine

Hope this helps
