Hi all,

We have an interface (file to IDOC) which is throwing a mapping error as shown in attached pics.

We have mapped the external schema(file format) to an existing IDOC in SAP.

The BEGIN tag exists in the file yet the mapping error is for that tag as shown in attached pic.

I tried mapping BEGIN to constant 1 but when I checked the mapping in ESR I see a crossed line on the "green" node for the BEGIN tag as shown in below pic.

Any idea what to do to make this mapping work?

What does the line on the BEGIN node mean?

Please advise.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Sp,

You have to click the button right in the mouse on the field and to enable the field:

This BEGIN attribute is mandatory in all IDOC structures.

Additional to Iñaki's answer: you need to hardcode all the attributes i.e BEGIN and SEGMENT with constant 1.
