Mass maintenance of materials in SAP via Excel is a very common use case for Winshuttle customers. Thousands of people worldwide are using Excel templates and Winshuttle scripts to save thousands of hours completing manual data maintenance.
In the past, customers usually have created their own templates and scripts for materials management. We’re pleased to announce we have launched a downloadable, free standard Winshuttle solution customers can adapt to their own.
This solution will link together multiple scripts that handle many different updates, from creating basic details to extending to plants and sales organizations. All the various views of an SAP material are incorporated in this chain of linked scripts, and the same solution can be used for both creating new materials and modifying existing ones. The solution is smart enough to determine which scripts to execute based on simple selections by the user in the Excel template.
By design, the solution is very versatile. The idea is to enable a wide range of mass updates with the same template. When you roll out a versatile and flexible solution like this one, you can gain significant long-–term advantages by not having to build and maintain many different solutions for specific purposes.
