Adding field to Extension IDOC

There is an extension IDOC already defined for Orders which has one Z*segment type defined. The release flag is not set on this segment . I would like to add another field to this segment. I added the field in WE31(Z1EDk02-->Z2EDK02) but when I checked in Se11, the field was not added in Z1EDK02 structure. It was avl only in Z2EDK02. So I manually added the field in SE11. Could you please advise if this is correct process or should I create a new segment type ? Thanks in advance for your help!

    Hi,

    There is no need to explicitly add the new filed in SE11. It will reflect automatically.

    I do not understand the above notation. Is Z1EDK02 is header segment and Z2EDK02 is child segment or else have you added field Z2EDK02 in segment Z1EDK02?

    Regards,

    Hi,

    If Z1EDK02 is the header segment and Z2EDK02 is the child segment then the fields in the child segment would not be reflected in the header segment. But don't worry in the child segment, the field is available which would be enough.

    After adding the fields, mention the segment names in the Extension IDOC for it to be reflected in the IDOC Extension.

    Hope this is helpful.

    Hi,

    Once if want to add the field to the segment at first it need to exists in the table level rite. After adding the field, then release the segment.

    Hi,

    I'm new to idocs kindly advise on the following issue:

    I have a similar requirement.I have to add BUKRS field to a z-segment(extension of E1COBK). I added it through se11.

    I also added the same field on the sender end as well as the receiver end.

    I have also modified the inbound function module so that it receives value being sent.

    However the value for the new field is not being passed.

    is this correct way of adding field to pass value?

    thanks,
