Entry in outbound table not found

Hello all

I have a very strange issue with RD04 message. I have 3 inter-company suppliers selling to the one and same partner. For two of them the process works as expected, in the sense that output is sent and the resulting EDI message generates the FI vendor invoice but in the case of the third LI partner the output fails - no iDoc is generated - with the following message

Entry in outbound table not found

Message no. E0400


No partner profile (outbound parameter) could be found using the following key:


This refers to the key fields in table EDP13:

  • RCVPRN Partner number
  • RCVPRT Partner type
  • RCVPFC Partner function
  • MESTYP Logical message
  • MESTYP Message code
  • MESCOD Message function
  • TEST Test indicator

Needless to say that I checked and re-checked for days all the configurations and details of all 3 partner profiles and found no difference. I even deleted both partner profiles - the one belonging to the third LI vendor and the KU customer - and recreated them but in vane, no change has been noticed.

The most intriguing part of the error message is the "XXX". I never used that for the message code - I'm assuming that's the corresponding field - but still, somehow the system is looking for it. I even added XXX to the message code but that only increased the confusion: the error message looked like this:

/MEGAT/KU/RE/INVOIC/XXX/XXX// suggesting that first XXX is not used for Message code.

Can someone make any sense out of the above?

Thank you.

    Please check the partner role of the KU partner profile and also check the message control "change" to be unchecked.

    I have gone through this error, This error is only due to maintiance of partner profile.

      Thank you for the time taken to reply.

      The system is the same for KU and LI partners.

      Partner profile were maintained in WE20 but I haven't touched WE30, I'm using basic type INVOIC01 and this works as expected for other KU/LI combinations.

      The note refers to issues regarding the incoming invoice whereas my problem is that I can't send the RD04 output at all and subsequently the iDoc is not generated.

      Thank you.
