SAP's Legacy System Migration Workbench (LSMW) is a free add-on tool that supports migration of external data into an SAP system, using a user-friendly mapping tool with helpful features. You simply search for an appropriate object type (or create your own) from your selected import technology, and then map the source data structure to the target. The LSMW does the rest. This article shows you how to perform easier, faster, and more cost-effective data migrations with the LSMW and the BAPI import technology.
