In SAP ECC, LSMW tool is preferred for Master data uploads. For transaction data, most of the time BDC recordings are preferred over LSMW. It’s a belief that FB01 recording in LSMW is not feasible. This is untrue. LSMW can be used for FB01 recording.

In this blog focus will not be on LSMW recording steps. Prime focus will be on significant steps required for FB01 recording.

Pre-requisite: Readers should possess basic LSMW knowledge.

This blog coves below steps.
