LSMW Sales orders possible with standard object? (RESOLVED)

Post by roos » Tue May 06, 2003 5:03 am

Hi

(1) Has anyone been successful in loading sales order using the standard object provided by SAP?

The reason why I ask is because if you try and use the standard object for uploading consumption values, it doesn't work and you have to apply an OSS note.

Currently, when I try to upload sales orders using the standard object for sales orders I am getting the following error message

Start of processing
V1 091
Date . . is not valid
*** Data from this document has not been saved ***

Thanks in advance,

Roos

Dear roos,

Do you get any details as what record is being processed. If so, what is the date format for that record when you use the 'Display converted data' option within LSMW ?

You often find that the dates need to be loaded in SAP format (YYYY.MM.DD).

Hi

I have not got that info in display converted date because I don't know which date it refers to...

However, when I enter dates I have netered one as follows 110404...I will give your format a try...

Thanks for the suggestion.

Regards,

Roos

After 9 years I can come back and update this with a solution.

Essentially, the date format was fine but SAP DOES NOT want me to have any date related fields 'empty'.

So I did

(1) Double click on maintain field mapping.
(2) Do a search (ctrl+f) and locate any field with a date in the text.
(3) Select each and every one of these dates and enter a constant of 00000000 in each of them.
(4) Job done!
