SAP PI - One Source Field many Target fields

Hello experts,

I have created a mapping-scenario where the source fields is once per context filled with data and I want that data in a target field in ten Idocs.

You can see an example in the pictures I added below.

Thanks in advance,

    The screenshots do not help very much (at least to me) but I would assume

    • input data looks like this
    		<!-- more data -->
    		<!-- more data -->
    	<!-- more records -->
    • You have some data that is an identifier to the record set or at least some data that is always there in the record, whereas other data might be there or might be not. Let's call this special data "key" shall we?
    • You want to create a multi mapping resulting in an "COND_A02" IDoc (I don't even know what that is for :-) ) per record?

    If that's the case I think you wouldn't even need useOneAsMany which Praveen suggested. You could simply map the record to the "multi-root-node" (the one below message node) of multi mapping and then work your way down using one-to-one mapping and using map with default where appropriate. If it is a really deeply nested IDoc you surely must look into useOneAsMany, look at contextes or other "node functions".

    • Hi, Jens,
      I have not solved the mapping in this way because different fixed values are to be written to the fields in each IDoc.
      Thank you for linking the instructions for XSLT mapping.

      PS: After searching for the error in the mapping all morning, it turned out that the source data was incorrect...

      But thanks for your help anyway.

      Best Regards,
