    I am afraid then there is no quicker way to do it.

    You have to go for total custom solution. By default SAP do not come up with any EDI translator.

    Remember at the end X12 or EDIFACT are text files. So you can write your own logic in a standalone program to generate X12 and download/ftp them to the target client.

    It is cumbersome I know but AFAIK , it is the one of the option without middleware to generate EDI files.

    There is another way where you can write any Idoc in an XML port(It is simple) and then you can use some third party software to convert XML to X12, like what do in stylus studio for example. Not sure if the software will have public API so that you can call that in ABAP program. I never tried this though.
