To upload the Specification data into Specification data base we use OCC,

OCC needs certain format to update the data , we can upload both online and offline data modes.


The sequence of the columns is not predefined. However, SAP recommends you enter the specification ID in the firstcolumn, and that you use the next to import identifiers to the specification.InSpecification Management, identifiers are stored in table ERSTI. Therefore, the first letter for mapping identifiers is"I".The value "IDENT" follows a colon for the field in which the identifier is stored. Information about identifier type (fieldIDTYPE) and category (field IDCAT) follow, separated by commas.
