Inbound IDOC

Invoice --> XI --> R/3 (IDOC)

We are expecting a High volume of Invoice. Currently we dont have an IDOC Type to handle the Invoice. We are going to newly develop that.

We are on R/3 4.7,WAS 6.40. XI 3.0, SP 14.

Because of the High Volume and the IDOC is going to be created newly, I know it would be better to use PROXY.

But if some one provide me the exact details about developing a PROXY for this situation and also what exactly the ABPERS need to handle this situation, will help me a lot.

thanks a lot

    if you want to use an ABAP proxy

    first you need to make sure your

    r3 4.7 uses at least WAS 6.20

    then you can treat it exactly as calling a BAPI/RFC

    (since you're abapers)

    you just need to create a structure of the bapi

    for creating invoices in the XI (you can

    use import the babpi from r3) and then

    create an inbound message interface out of it

    then when you create classes out of it inside

    your r3 you will just call the real bapi

    that creates invoices 😊

    then you just have to map the incomming invoice

    to the proxy bapi

    and that's all

    • this weblog by Siva

      is enough for every abaper to know

      how to call an bapi for invoice creation

      from the xi via proxy


      you can also use abap mapping if you want/like

      or if it's easier for you


      I'd do it with standard IDOC but do as you like 😊

    Hi Rohini,

    Is your source is a file ?

    <i>Because of the High Volume and the IDOC is going to be created newly, I know it would be better to use PROXY.</i>

    >>Are you sure, there is no standard idocs/RFCs for invoice creation? Because if it exists, then try to use the same.

    As you told, it is not there,if you are planning to use a proxy here, then this type of proxy is called Server Proxy. I am sure that, in this type of standard business process(Invoice data), there should be some function module exist for this. So if you use proxy, you need to write many codes/validations etc to make sure that given data is correct to update in master tables.

    <i> ABPERS need to handle this situation</i>

    >>>Whatever you use (idoc/proxy/rfc) XI will give you some structured data. So all your business logc should execute in the ABAP code. So now you can understand how much effort required to develop this code..

    Now coming to the source structure, and how invoice data should populate? based on these you can think for proxy/RFC/Idoc..
