File to multiple IDOCS


This would have been discussed a lot in SDN. But I would not want an idoc occurrence changed to 0..unbounded as my mapping is not split on record level but using various conditions.

To put it simple, the same source file is used to create 3 different idocs with many fields changing. I can't accommodate in one single mapping as it is very complex.

Easiest way for me is to have 3 different idoc messages in the target and do one to one mapping. I know this is not possible as idoc does not go through adapter engine.

I am using old version of PI which is 7.01. So, I thought about having multiple receivers using ED, but again that will let me create only mutiple business service but not same business systems triggered for 3 times.

One other way is to route those business services through soap adapter and send it to 3 different scenarious to create the idocs. But again this seems to be more complicated.

Is there any way where I can copy the source file and pick it up again 3 times. This might solve the issue.

    Hello Sam ,

    You can create three different communication channels from sender side and follow two options :

    1. First two channels in test mode and last one in delete mode.

    2. Archive file from first sender and use archive directory as source directory for second channel and so on.

    For the above approach you have to schedule ATP to start channels one by one.

    Another approach will be to create another interface to pick up the source file and copy it to three different directories and then use your secondary interfaces.
