User Guide for Data Upload The use of CATT is for bulk uploading of data.

Although CATT is primarily a testing tool, it can be used for the mass upload of data. The way CATT works is like a real user actually inputting on the SAP screen. You prepare a set of data that are required to be input into the system and execute what you called a Test Case and CATT will do the boring task of keying for you. Over-all procedure The over-all procedure to upload data using CATT is as follows: · Creation of the CATT test case & recording the sample data input. · Download of the source file template. · Modification of the source file. · Upload of the data from the source file. Details of each step are provided in the following paragraphs. Detailed Procedure Creation of the CATT test case: Creation of the test case is completed as follows: · Execute Transaction SCAT · Name the test case. Test case name must start with ³Z´. It is also good practise to include the transaction code in the test case name (e.g. Z_IE01_UPLOAD for the upload of equipment) · Click the ³Record´ button. · Enter the transaction code (e.g. IE01) · Continue recording the transaction. Ensure data is entered into every field that is to be used during the upload. · Save the test case. Download the source file template Download of source file template is conducted in two stages as follows: · Creation of import parameters: · Within transaction SCAT, Double Click on the TCD line in the ³Maintain Functions´ screen. · Click the Field List button (Field list is displayed). · For every field that you wish to upload data, double click in the Column New field contents (This creates an import parameter). · In the Maintain Import Parameter Pop-Up: · Delete the default value if not required. · Press Enter · The New field contents column now contains the character & followed by the field name (e.g.
