Hi Kiran,

We must require data for mandatory fields. If data is not there the program wil throw the error, we need to capture those errors and need to show them to the user.

1) Define constants in the program and use them to fill the fields (BDCDATA). OR

2) Configure the system to make the mandatory fields non-mandatory (to be done by functional consultants) OR

3) Somehow get the mandatory fields.

that record will not be processed in background and will return an error..

and in foreground and error only mode it will stop at that screen where mandatory field was to be filled...

So u need to take care that.. mandatory fields are mapped properly..

Hi Kiran,

If you dont have data for mandatory fields

1. Ask the customer to give data.

2. Ask him whether it can be hardcoded like say everytime he is using only KG as unit of measure then that can be hardcoded.

3. Ask functional consultant to make the field non optional. Generally FI consultants maintain Field Status Variant which contains radiobuttons for fields just uncheck the radio button required field.

Reward points if useful,

Hi Kriran,

as per Data Migration concept: before doing actual data transfer, just make sure to do the dummy transaction i mean with dummy test data and see what are the feileds need to be fill.

if you dont have mandatory fields data just inform to the functional people to get it. if not possible, just keep maintin constant (Dummy values like . or , or -) data whle transfering.

otherwise, it will show you the errors in error log file, again you have to transfer them it again risky work.

so, better to maintain static (constant) values i mean fixed values.

this is only the way to do the functionality of data migration.

reward points useful

Hi Kiran,

If you dont have the data for mandatory fields, those records will not be processed.
