The Data Transfer Workbench provides integrated project management for all the required steps involved in transferring data to your system.

A project consists of one or more subprojects, each subproject consists of one or more run definitions, and each run definition consists of one or more tasks. These objects are displayed in a hierarchy in the project management.

When the run is started, all the tasks of the run definition are carried out in sequence when the associated programs are called.

You need to use programs or function modules for the various steps.

Once you have created a project, you can start a run. The tasks of a run definition are processed in order. The result of a run is displayed as status information in color (green, yellow or red) in the hierarchy.

The process of transferring data for each object can be divided into the following steps:

  1. Preparing the data transfer
  1. Executing the data transfer
