LSMW idoc Inbound Processing settings


We have done LSMW with BAPI method to create Bank master.

In Idoc Inbound Processing settings -

We created partner type as 'B' i.e, for BANK

While creating Partner Number it is not allowing to create Partner Number. The error is "Enter a permissible partner number"

Please let me know what would be the problem.

Use patner type as US only and LSMW as Patner number.

this will surely solve your problem .

plz do this way :

The first requirement is a file port for the file transfer. If required, create a port of the file type via Maintain ports. To do this, position the cursor on "File" and press Create. You should be in change mode. SAP recommends:

Port: LSMW

Name: Legacy System Migration Workbench

Version: 3 (IDoc record types SAP Release 4.x)

Outbound file Please enter a (dummy) physical directory and a file name, i.e. u2018filelsmwu2019 ยท

As an addition, you can specify a tRFC port. This port is required, if you do not want to create a file during data conversion but submit the data in packages directly to function module IDoc_Inbound_Asynchronous.

SAP recommends:

Port: assigned by the system

Version: 3 (IDoc record types SAP Release 4.x)

RFC destination: Name of R/3 System

Name of port: Legacy System Migration Workbench.

Then the partner type should be defined or selected. SAP recommends:

Partner type: "US" (User)

As of release 4.5A, this partner type is available in the standard system. Up to release 4.0B inclusive, this partner type is not available in the standard program and should be added. SAP recommends:

Partner type: Create US


Form routine: READ_USER

Short description: any.

Finally a partner number should be defined or selected. SAP recommends:

Partner number: LSMW

Partner type: US

Partner status: A (active)

Type: US

Language: DE or EN

Person in charge: Your user ID.
