SAPLSMW now has a Workarounds section

Jimbo's picture

Too often we encounter impasses while using SAP. Getting around these are the aim of a new section on our site called Workarounds. Examples of how to use LSMW in unintended ways to solve simple problems will be the mainstay of this new section.

The Workarounds section is off to a good start with the Coffee Cup Method. This low-tech solution allows data to be loaded unattended even when SAP throws up a non-issue warning like "screen field missing". Non-developers tend to complain when they have to hold the Enter key down and this is a great workaround for that.
