    Hi Shahi,

    IDOCS are flat files having one EDIDC and multiple EDIDD records. From O/S level copy the IDOC file to your PC .

    ( If O/S of your appl server is unix you can use FTP to get file on local PC ). Here you can open it with NOTEPAD . You also need to know where in the O/S is IDOC file stored . IDOCS are written to O/S only if you use File Port . From File Port defined in WE20 ( partner profile ) , you can get the pathname on which an IDOC would be stored.

      Hi Shashi,

      TRFC ports are for SAP to SAP ALE.

      In TRFC port IDOCS donot goto file instead they are transferred to another system through memory buffers.

      ( You can always see IDOCS in WE05 )

      Any by Operating system I meant the O/s of your SAP application server not your local PC O/s. You can see your O/s type in SYSTEM - > STATUS ( Host Data ) from any screen in SAP.
