Want to Replace TRANSTRACK (Legacy system) Functionalities into SAP

Hi,
Currently client is using SAP R/3 as well as TRANSTRACK (Supplied by Transtrack International).
Currently Transtrack does the following things...
It receives the master route schedules from SAP and creates no. of daily schedules. It reads BAR code, which generated by SAP and stickled on the packing. It transfers the daily route and this bar code details to van driver hand held machines. It reads once again the Barcode details after delivery.
Can you please advise, by using which functionality of SAP we can replace this TRANSTRACK functionality entirely.
Help need urgently.

Dear Lakshmanan,
Go through the documentation on
Transportation:
http://help.sap.com/saphelp_erp2005/helpdata/en/d5/2285347860ea35e10000009b38f83b/frameset.htm
Transportation is an essential element in the logistics chain. It affects both incoming and outgoing goods. Effective transportation planning and processing ensure that shipments are dispatched without delay and arrive on schedule. Transportation costs play an essential role in the calculation of the price of a product. It is important to keep these transportation costs to a minimum so that the price of a product remains competitive. Efficient transportation planning and processing helps to keep these costs down.
As illustrated in the following graphic, you can use the SAP transportation functions to plan and process:
· Incoming shipments in Materials Management based on purchase orders and shipping notifications
· Outbound shipments in Sales and Distribution based on sales orders and deliveries
The transportation component includes basic transportation processing functions:
· Transportation planning and shipment completion
· Shipment costs calculation
· Shipment costs settlement
· Shipment costs calculation for individual customers
· Billing of customer freight
· Service agent selection
· Management of means of transport and utilities
· Follow-up and supervision of shipments
· Management of shipment costs
These transportation functions can handle planning and processing for both inbound and outbound shipments. You can control and monitor the entire transportation process from the planning stage to goods issue at your shipping point (for outbound shipments) or vendor location (for inbound shipments), through to goods receipt at the customer location or your plant.
Bar Code Support:
Mobile Data Entry supports the use of bar codes for identification and verification purposes.
1. Identification
You scan bar codes, printed on transfer orders and other container documents, to identify:
Storage bin
Material
Quantity
Delivery
Staging area
Shipment
Pick wave
Handling unit
Storage Unit
2. Verification
You scan bar codes to verify information of the following fields:
Storage unit
Material
Quantity
Storage bin
Other fields
In Customizing for
Logistics Execution -> Mobile Data Entry -> Verification Control -> Define Profiles, defined a verification profile and the respective fields that are to be verified.
Logistics Execution -> Mobile Data Entry -> Verification Control -> Assign Verification Profiles to Goods Movements, determined for which warehouse, storage types and movement type your verification profile is valid.
Logistics Execution -> Mobile Data Entry -> Bar Code -> Assign Bar Code Types to Warehouse Numbers, defined which bar code is supported in your warehouse to identify goods.
Logistics Execution -> Mobile Data Entry -> Bar Code -> Maintain Bar Code Specification, maintained the structure of the bar code types.
Logistics Execution -> Mobile Data Entry -> Bar Code -> Assign Bar Code Types to Warehouse Numbers, defined by which bar code standard the fields are to be verified.

  • Loading Legacy system data into CRM 4.0 Service

    I want to load a legacy system and create an IBASE component : the legacy data is filled in excel format.
    Which is a better way ?? LSMW or use the function module:'CRMXIF_IBASE_SAVE'. What are the advantages and disadvantages??
    This is urgent.

    Hi Narayani,
    LSMW using Ibase-idocs:
    - a lot of functionality is covered (file-upload, converting, mapping,...)
    - probably no coding required (or at least not to much).
    - follow-up & errorhandling of uploaded data
    - should be easy to set up
    using function CRMXIF_IBASE_SAVE:
    - direct control of data
    - coding (you'll have to do the mapping yourself)
    - no follow-up or errorhandling (except in the bdocs)
    - The code cannot be reused.
    --> If you need to combine excel-data with data already present in CRM, then it's a bit more complex.
    --> I haven't tried the LSMW yet for IBASES

  • I want to replace my main system drive:

    Hi all:
    I can't seem to find a clear answer on this:
    I bought some new drives and would like to replace my main system drive with one of the new drives. It's a bigger drive, 1TB as opposed to 250Gb.
    Is it true that I can use Disk Utility to re-image the main drive onto a new drive, then replace the previous system drive with the new mirrored drive?
    Please advise. I've found nothing on the site to help me out other than a previous post that seems to indicate that I can do this. If you have details, please share them. Thank you!
    -Pete

    Either Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper will be more convenient.
    You can, in fact, use Disk Utility for this without creating a disk image in between. You just need to go to the Restore tab and drag the current volume (from the sidebar) to Source and drag the new volume to Destination. Make sure you drag the volume (indented under the drive) and not the drive to the Source and Destination fields; this is a volume to volume operation. Check the +Erase destination+ box to make the copy exact. After double-checking that you did not reverse the source and destination , click on the Restore button.
    The inconvenience is that you can't be booted from the volume you want to duplicate. So if that volume is your startup volume, you need to restart from the Mac OS X installation disc and run Disk Utility from the Installer's menu bar (or start up from another bootable volume).
    The non-Apple cloning utilities use a different method for duplicating, and they can duplicate the startup drive.
    Since you have a Power Mac G5, you can mount the new drive in the second internal bay. All the cables and screws are already in the case. There is no need to "replace" the existing drive, and there is no functional or operational difference between the first and second bays.

  • How to upload the data from legacy system database to SAP data base

    Hi.
    We are doing analysis of Legacy system and which needs to be converted to SAP system i.e. SAP implementation.
    I just want to know , how we migrate the existing whole data( from legacy system) into SAP system.
    and which method is the best method to use data migration from legacy to SAP system if data legacy data amount is huge.
    Please suggest me.
    Thanks.

    Hi
    We can either use the BDC or BAPI or LSMW  or Direct Input techiniques for the data transfers.
    The combination of both Session and Call transaction can be used to achieve this that includes the error handling also. This invloves the screen interaction.
    These days, BAPIs are used to overvome some upgrade problems. For easy upgradation, we cna go for BAPIs. Here ther is no screen intercation.
    LSMW mainly used for master data transfers using some standrad programs.
    As per your client or company desicions  we can choose any of them.
    Please refer to these links for more understanding -
    BDC Vs LSMW -

  • Transfering of old legacy accounting balance into sap

    Hi,
    i have implimented SAP in my company and i used new G/L's instant of old chart of account which i was using before implimenting  SAP. Here i have a problem, i want to transfer old G/L's balanaces into new G/L's.
    so, i need to know how to transfer the old accounting Balances from legacy system to SAP)
    Thanks + Regards
    SN.Noorie
    Moderator: Please, search before posting

    Hi,
    The upload of GL Balances have to split into several steps:
    1. Normal GL Accounts: In this case line items are not required and totals are to be updated in SAP. This can be done using GL fast entry if the number is not too high.
    2. Open Item Managed GL Accounts: All the open line items are required to be uploaded in SAP from Legacy in order to clear them. Hence, a LSMW / BDC program has to be developed to upload the line items.
    3. Customer & Vendor Open Items: All open line items in Customer and Vendor Accounts have to be brought in into SAP. For this also a LSMW / BDC program needs to be developed and upload the line items.
    4. Asset Accounting: In case asset accounting is implemented the individual balances of each asset (Gross Value and Accumulated Depreciation) have to be uploaded using transaction AS91. For this also you need to develop a LSMW / BDC program. Further, you also need to update the GL Accounts related to Asset Accounts with totals for each asset class T.Code OASV.
    5. Further, material values are also to be updated - Material wise and this should tie with the GL Balance.
    In addition, one more point to be noted is the use of Dummy / Conversion accounts for bringing in data from legacy to SAP. It is better to create five or six conversion accounts like for Assets, Liabilities, Revenue, Expenses, Materials etc. The sum of all these conversion accounts should be ZERO after completing the conversion. This way the reconciliation will become easy.
    Thanks

    thanks
    sandeep dabral

    Hi Sandeep,
    You require a abap guy along with a basis person. Below steps are required.
    Step 1: The third party ll specify the file format in which they are going to send the data.
    Step 2. You need to check with the basis or a third tool to upload the file into SAP application directory tcode al11.
    step 3: Then the ABAP guy will write a interface program using this BAPIs to upload the data in to catsdb.
    Step 4. Then functional testing and bug fixing and finially sheduling the inteface job in Production.

  • Data load from Legacy system to BW Server through BAPI

    Requirements: We have different kind of legacy systems and SAP BW server. We want to load all legacy system data into SAP BW server using BAPI. Before loading we have to validate all data. If there are bad data, data missing we have to let the legacy system user/ operator knows to fix the data into their system with detail explanation. When it is fixed, we have to load the data again.
    Load Scenario:  We have two options to load data from legacy systems to BW Server.
    1.     We need to load data directly from legacy system to BW Server using BAPI program.
    2.     Legacy Systems data would be in workstations or flash drive as .txt (one line separated by comma) or .csv file. Need to load from .txt /.csv file to BW Server using BAPI program.
    What we want in the BAPI program code?
    It will Read / Retrieve data from text / csv file and will put into the Internal table. Internal table structure would be based on BAPI InfoObject structure.
    Call BAPI InfoObject function module ‘BAPI_IOBJ_CREATE’ to create InfoObject, include all necessary / default components, do the error check, load the data and return the status.
    Could some one help me with the sample code please? I am new in ABAP / BAPI coding.
    Is there any other better idea to load data from legacy system to BW server? BTW we are using BW 3.10. Is there any better option with BI 7.0 to resolve the issue? I appreciate your help.

    my answers:
    1. this is a scendario for a data push into SAP BW. You can only use SOAP-Based Transfer of Data.
    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/fd/8012403dbedd5fe10000000a155106/frameset.htm
    (here for BW 3.5, but you'll find similar for 7.0)
    In this scenario you'll have an RFC dinamically created for every Infosource you need to transfer data.
    2. You can make a chain for each data load, so you can call the RFC "RSPC_API_CHAIN_START" to start the chain from external.
    the second solution is more simply and available on every release.

  • Sales Return from Legacy System

    Dear Expert,
    How to return back stock from sales return where those items were Customer Return that sold using legacy system before  using SAP. Now we need to put back those stock as unrestricted stock, however, we have problem here that we do not have reference documents to perform sales return in SAP.
    Best regards,
    Mahnansa

    If your intension is to take only the stock into SAP, then you can take the returned stocks directly via MB1A with movement type 292 where you can maintain the original sale order reference in the field "Doc.Header Text" which will be passed on to FI table BKPF.   Parallelly, an FI entry can also be passed to make a credit entry against that customer account.
    On the other hand, if you want to capture via a return order, then create a return order without referencing the parent billing document and follow the SD process.
    thanks

    I am in to  implematation for a proj. The client was using the legacy system for reporting and now they want SAP BW
    Moreover they were not having r3 is the past but now they are implemeting r3 and will post their documents there.
    They are intersted to fetch all the data whihch is in their legacy system in to sap bw and once  its done they will post all the documents in r3 and as per that we will connect R/3  to bw.
    My question is
    1) How to connect the legacy system to bw
    2) If its possible , will it be advisable to have 2 source systems attached to bw OR after loading data from the legacy system into bw., we should scrap the system as it is not rquired for furute use. (As from no onwards data will be posted in r3)

  • How to replace the virtual system as the real system in the TMS?

    Hi,
    I have a standard 3 systems TMS, which is 1 development system (real system, transport domain) and 2 virtual system(QAS and PRD).
    And now, I will install the QAS system and replace the virtual system as the real one, How can I do in TMS?
    I should delete the old TMS and rebuild the TMS with 1 DEV, 1 QAS and 1 virtual PRD? or just replace the QAS as the real one? What the operation should I do in t-code:STMS?
    Many thanks.
    BR,
    Randy

    Hi,
    Do it as follows.
    1. Remove transport routes (i think it is not mandatory)
    2. Remove your Virtual system that you want to replace with physical system
    3. Include the Physical system into Domain and accept it from Domain Controller
    4. Configure the transport routes.You can see all the transports that were in the import queue of virtual system are now in the import queue of the Physical system that you added.
    Only condition is, both Virtual System and Physical System should have same SID.
    All the above will be done through STMS
    Thanks,

  • Missing Data from Legacy System

    Hello All,
    My client went live end of January this year. They had a month of transaction data in their legacy system which they did not bring into SAP. Since this is their first year on SAP and recently implemented Extended Withhold Tax one month data is missing; when they run the 1099s at the end of the year they are going to be reported incorrectly.
    How can we bring over that missing data from legacy system over to SAP without having to clear those invoices in SAP?
    Thank You In Advance

  • Legacy systems down...

    Hi,
    I am working on an SAP XI implementation project My job here is to integrate many leagacy systems with the SAP.
    Iwanted to know how can ensure that my legacy system,which are connected to XI through interfaces are running. Also, I would like to get alerts or something like that whenever any one of these legacy systems are down.
    Please help.
    Thanks.

    Hi,
    If u want to know that legacy system has received the message or not. then it wil be two step process.
    One is ur actual process and other process is the ack from legacy system.
    Once the data is received by Legacy system then ask legacy system to send the Response message to XI saying that message is received. if legacy system is down then in that case there wil not be a Ack response hence u will come to know that message is not reached to legacy system.
    Thnx
