SAP FINSTA01 integration with EDI823

Hi gurus

We have a requirement in Accounts receivables to use EDI 823 for differernt types of electronic payments such as RTGS , Domestic wire, International wire , ACH etc

My client uses a non SAP system to generate the EDI 823 output after doing the matching of invoices , advices and payments etc. They do the AR recon in their legacy system and send the matched/reconciled documents to the SAP .

Their end clients are using SAP ECC 6.0 for Accounts receivables .

In SAP we want to use FINSTA01 , which is the idoc for payments . I am aware that we need to create IDOC setup ,but my query is more around whether a middleware such as SAP PI or GENTRAN is needed for the integration or direct posting without any middleware intervention is possible in SAP . Are there any standard adapters or plugins in ECC 6.0 for the same .I would like to know whether we can post an idoc directly to do the AR posting , without any middleware in the end client SAP systems

If it is possible can somebody throw light with steps including config and prerequisites and also the standard programs if any .For example for lockbox we have FLB2 and for vendor payments we have F110 etc .

Appreciate responses and points will be given for the suitables replies .

Please advice

    Hi Ramanathan,

    If you have a SAP PI system in your landscape , go ahead with SAP PI integration as with PI in place you will have more traceability of the messages exchanged between SAP and non SAP system.

    I believe you non sap system (EDI message sender ) sending EDI xml message to PI through HTTP or SOAP adapter for sending a Idoc to ECC system below 3 things should be done in PI system

    1. RFC destination (Type 3 ) to receiver ECC system .

    2. create a Idoc port (idx1)

    3. Reload metadata of Idoc (optional).

    On receiver ECC :

    Create Logical system (for PI system) and partner profile

      Hi Ramanathan,

      ECC is capable of reading file from FTP location/ web service , can ABAP program convert EDI - XML format to required FINSTA01 Idoc (please check with ABAPER regrading this option)


      AFAIK, use of middleware is not mandatory (depends on project landscape and architecture ). If ABAPER can handle conversion of EDI_XML to FINSTA01 Idoc , you can achieve this in ECC alone.

      Note : If you are having a middleware (SAP PI or other that can communicate with SAP system ) in your landscape , i recommend to go for use of middleware.
