hi, Mubarack:


I think that BDC is often used to do batch input in stead of manual work.
for Example: you can write a program to create Master data
from a .txt file so you need not create master data one by one manually.

there is many cases you can use it and many source codes are available.

Dear Mubarack,

Additionally, BDC stands for Batch Data Communication and are accessed via sessions (transaction SM35). BDC sessions basically simulate the act of a user entering data during an SAP transaction.

BDC is also known as dataloading and is particularly prevelant, in SAP projects, where data from legacy systems is being migrated over to SAP.

Thanks for your reply, I know it is possible by opening a dataset
and appent it to internal table and also database using some queries.
then why we are using BDC ?

Hi-ho Mubarack,

The advantage of BDC is that it resembles a user entering data. Therefore if incorrect data is entered, the transaction cannot be continued and an error BDC session is created. Here the errors can be analysed and corrected – usually with a functional analyst – and the correct data will be uploaded.

Admittedly, BDCs are quite an old technology and are slow but they still have their uses as they ensure only the appropriate data is entered into the SAP database

I hope this helps.

Regards,
