The Excel® download/upload transaction will allow you to first download a flow-down field template to Excel® and after populating field values, upload to enter the data against the desired sales documents.

The first step in this process is to download the file template that you will populate and upload.  This file template can be achieved through the download selection option.  It is possible to download a selection of sales documents by individually entering the sales document number or by entering a sales document type which will download all sales documents of this type.  The download file can contain existing content or can be downloaded without content if the field catalog only selection option is chosen.
