Sales Order Upload
I need to upload sales orders from MS-excel spread-sheets. The upload process has to take place in Production once the system is live. LSMW does not seem to be a good option here as the user is going to run this upload process after go-live. We do not wish to use BDC's because it is not so convenient for the user to have a look at the errors occuring during the upload process. Do we have to create Idocs for creating sales orders or is there any other way out?

I would recommend IDOCS as it has excellent error handling capabilities. Especially in your case since the data load has to be done after go-live it would be easier to trouble shoot , given the fact that you might not have much time.
Other options would be using a BAPI to load the sales orders. Though this is also a good process, the error handling capabilities are not as good as idocs.
The advantage is that you dont have to setup the ALE settings and other related dependent customizing.
BDC is definitely a NO NO
