    Create Data Types


    Create your Sender Data type -- DT_SRM

    Create your Receiver Data Type -- DT_File

    Create Message Types




    Create the Message Interface


    MI_SRM(MT_SRM) Outbound & Asynchronous

    MI_File(MT_File) Inbound & Asynchronous

    Create the Message Mapping


    MM_SRM2File ---(MT_SRM to MT_File)



    Log on to SRM System


    Transaction /nSPROXY

    Create your Proxy


    XI Directory


    Create Sender Agreement

    Create Receiver Agreement (FILE Receiver)

    Create Interface Determination

    Create Receiver Determination (Refer your Receiver Agreement and Interface Determination)

    HI ,

    As your scenario is Idoc->XI->File Scenario..

    It is not required to have source data type or message interface. Idoc itself acts an interface. And message type is nothing but idoc structure itself. You need to import the idoc into Repository.

    Check this blog as a reference -Idoc to FIle scenario


    And in similar lines you need to develop an interface.

    Coming to your exact scenario-

    Also for SRM systems , there are already predelivered content availale from SAP .It includes all the Repository objects. So you need to just do the configuration. Just check is there any objects are delivered for your current scenario.If not you can develop, as mentioned in my first part of the reply

    Check this thread-SRM->XI

    SRM XI scenario

    XML PO Transfer To Vendor in SRM 5.0 via NW2004S/PI 7.0

    Hope this helps,

    • Hi,

      <i>U told It is not required to have source data type or message interface..why??</i>

      >>> Yes, it is not required if you are using Idoc/RFCs/BAPIs. Because we are going to import the structure into Repository. so this it will act as a Message interface/message type.

      Is your source message format is other than above, then Data Type etc is required.

      Now coming to Mapping etc-

      If you are using Idoc etc , your source message type will be Idoc which you have imported from the SAP Application systems.And target depends on the requirement.

      And the mapping type is chosen based on the complexity and the requierement. So, if it is complex, then you can go with Java/XSLT mapping. But it is prefered to use Message Mapping(Graphical-Drag/drop) .

      Did you check, is there any standard delivered content exist in the SRM component ? If not you need to do mapping etc ..otherwise you can use existing one..
