    Hi vikas ,

     

    SCAT is a testing tool and should not be used on production server

     

    SAP users use CATT frequently to upload master data or to make changes to master data records. SAP Consultants and Abapers tend to use it for creating test data. The transactions run without user interaction. You can check system messages and test database changes. All tests are logged. The CATT records your keystrokes while performing the actual transaction. You then identify the fields that you wish to change in that view. Then export this data to a spreadsheet to populate with the data required. This is uploaded and executed saving you keying in the data manually.

     

    To perform CATT, it has to be enabled in your production environment (your systems administrator should be able to do this - SCC4). You will also need access to your development system to create the CATT script.

     

    The process of uploading data with a CATT:

     

    Activate CATT in your client

    In transaction code SCC4 - click the change button

    Double click on the client number

    In the Restriction section, tick Allows CATT processes to be started.

     

    Upload data using CATT

     

    1. Create Import variant for the fields you need

    Transaction SCAT

    Goto Parameters

    Create Import Variant

    Goto Variant -> Edit

    Goto Variant -> Fast entry or F9

    Duplicate 01

     

    2. To change the MRP Group for a list of Material

    Assuming that I want to change the MRP Group for a list of Material.

    My text files should look something like this:

    [Variant ID] [Variant Text] &ZDISGR &ZMATNR

    --> Parameter texts MRP group Material

    --> Default Values M1 A001

        • Changes to the default values displayed above not effective

    #01  M1 A001

    #02  ''     A002

    #03  M1 A003

    Note : '' denotes a blank in the field. e.g. Material A002 MRP group will be replaced by a blank.

     

    3. Configure the recorded entry fields to read from the imported text file data

    In the CATT : Maintain functions test case Screen

    Double click on the Object Name

    Double click on the screen number with your desired fields

    Park the cursor on the fields

    Click Edit -> Details

    Fill in the Parameters Name and Field Contents

    Finish Save it.

     

    Assign your text file data.

     

    In the CATT : Execute test case Screen

    Click External from file and choose your text file

    CATT will now read from your text file and update whatever data you have specified.

    CATT stands 4 Computer Aided Testing Tool

     

    Although CATT is meant for as a testing tools, many SAP users have now use CATT frequently to upload vendors master data and make changes to other master record.

     

    SAP Consultant and Abapers tends to used it for creating test data.

     

    With CATT, you don't have to create any ABAP upload programs and this save on development time.  However, you still have to spend time on data mapping into the spreadsheet format.

     

    The transactions run without user interaction. You can check system messages and test database changes. All tests are logged.

     

    What CATT does is record you performing the actual transaction once.

     

    You then identify the fields that you wish to change in that view.

     

    Then export this data to a spreadsheet to populate with the data required.

     

    This is uploaded and executed saving you keying in the data manually.

     

    To perform CATT, it has to be enabled in your production environment (your systems administrator should be able to do this - SCC4).

     

    You will also need access to your development system to create the CATT script.
