LSMW! Characteristics
B2
The Legacy Systems Migration Workbench (LSMW) is an R/3-based tool that supports one-time and
periodic transer o data rom non-S!" systems (legacy systems) to R/3#
This easy-to-use tool supports the con$ersion o data rom the non-S!" system that can then be
imported into the R/3 System using batch input% call transaction% direct input% &!"'s% or '(ocs#
'n addition% the LSMW pro$ides a recording unction% )hich you can use to generate a data
migration ob*ect rom a create or change transaction#

S)1
<sing the LSMW% you can read data rom presentation ser$ers ("/) or application ser$ers# To read
these iles% you must deine the structure o the ile (source structure)#
The ile contents are then read into an internal LSMW ormat and stored as an LSMW ile#
The ne3t step is to deine structure relationships and ield assignments# These speciy the mapping o
the source structure ields to the target structure ields#
'n addition% you must deine a con$ersion rule or e$ery source ield that maps to a ield in the target
structure# To do this% you speciy ho) the $alue o the source structure ield is to be transerred to the
ield in the target structure#
<sing these deinitions% the contents o the LSMW ile are con$erted to the target structure and can
then be transerred using the speciied transer method#
The LSMW generates t)o e3ecutable !&!" programs rom the structure deinitions and con$ersion
