    To transfer mass data, use either transaction AS100 or the BAPI BAPI_FIXEDASSET_OVRTAKE_CREATE for the legacy data transfer (or the method CreateInclValues for the business object BUS1022). Transaction AS100 can process a maximum of 5,000 assets in one file upload. However, you can split the file, if required.

    When LSMW is used in combination with BAPI_FIXEDASSET_OVRTAKE_CREATE, it is also possible to process, for example, an Excel file with more than 5,000 assets whereby one fixed asset is always represented by a (very wide) line in the Excel file. To do this, you must maintain the field mapping accordingly and define internally which depreciation areas or depreciation-area-specific information are stored in which columns (fixed assignment; for example: column BK - BZ contains, by convention, the ANLB information for area 20). In particular, this procedure is very useful if the feeder system from which the data is to be transferred supports an Excel download.

    If you require any support when setting up LSMW mapping, contact your SAP consultant. Setting up field mapping is not treated as part of standard SAP support. Instead, it is a customer-specific consulting service.
