Hello All.

I have a very unusual problem .I am.able to send and receive idoc from SAPECC to SAPGTS which carry the changed data from SAP ECC TO SAP GTS .but the data is nt reflecting in the transaction BP for the Customer master data I changed in SAP ECC.

The idoc from SAPECC is successfuly received on SAPGTS. I am able to see that in we02.

Please help me with the resolution of this issue.

    Hi Arjun,

    Although I cannot answer your question directly, I wonder why you are trying to transfer Master Data by iDoc, when that's not the usual way to feed GTS?

    It's normal to use the "Plug-In" functionality, which uses RFC to transfer data. For the transfer of customers, the standard Function Module (assigned in Transaction BD60) is /SAPSLL/DEBMAS_DISTRIBUTE_R3. That Function Module works as usual with the Change Pointers to transfer the data directly to GTS, avoiding the need to create and process iDocs.

    Could you change the configuration to work in the standard GTS way, or is there a particular reason for using the "traditional" approach?

    Regards,

    Dave

    Arjun,

    Check in BUT000 table CHDAT/CHTIM fields and see if the BP is actually getting updated or not.

    Execute the transaction - /sapsll/partner_appl or access it from System monitoring from menu legal and see if you have any log being generated.

    Please do let me know your result. Once we know whats happening then you can start working towards resolution. Thanks.

    Regards

    Rajesh

    Hello Arjun

    Hope you are doing good.

    Please understand that in such a case (you can refer it similar to synchronous data update) if idoc generation is successful , it should be updated in GTS side unless there are some locks as generation is a part of the same transfer program ( under name * packet generation something ) and you can find the log updated in-case of any errors.

    As per your query I understand this is related to changed documents , please check if change pointers are activated fine for document type on ECC side ( I suspect this will not work because without change pointers the idocs should be generated for changed data ).

    Additionally please check the data received on GTS side (Idocs) are for the changed BP ( customer master in your case ) and the status on the incoming idoc.

    Please advise us on the above to investigate further.

    Regards

    Jitender

      Hello Arjun

      I understand status of IDocs is in 53 status [successfully processed ] which means IDoc update run was successful. If there would have been error in partner profile, I suspect some error while Idoc processing (when Idoc is received in GTS side ) . It would be really difficult to comment at this stage, I would advise you to debug the IDoc data update routine to check further.

      I understand there is some specific requirement at your end to use the Idoc method instead of the approach suggested by Dave .

      Kindly park my 2nd comment from the previous update with respect to change pointer, I am checking that again.

      Regards

      Jitender
