    Hi Deepu,

    RFC look up means the function module which is remote enabled, and can be called from other systems. In our case, it is PI system.

    As it is function module, depending on the requirement we would go for standard function module or custom one. The coding of custom one is carried out by ABAP person.

    Which function module we need to select, it depends completely on our requirement.

    We can execute the function module and test in SE37 tcode in SAP system.

    From PI for version >=7.1, we can use sap provided RFC lookup conversion function, and use it in our interface development.

    For below PI version, you need to write a udf for this lookup purpose.

    For more information, you can use the link which suhail has shared for better understanding.

    Regards

    Vishnu

    He deepu,

    When we will go for Look ups?

    When you need configuration value at mapping time. For example a value that in the sender system is called A and in the receiver system is called XXY, and it means something of master data.

    Who will create look up table?

    Depending where the value is taken. You can use JDBC, RFC or SOAP for example to take these values.

    From where we will get particular information which table we need to select?

    From you want to, and normally a table to have the mapping between master values. Material001 in System A is called M0123 in Bystem B

    How we will test whether the look up is working fine or not ?

    You can test from the test tab in the mapping for example. You only need to set the communication channel that it will be used in the parameters tab.

    Regards.
