Mapping X12 fields to IDOC fields

Hi ,

<b>I'm creating mapping specs for 850 for a trading partner .</b>

Now I want to know how we do find out the corresponding Idoc field for an ansix12 segment .

Ex For BEG segment , BEG01 is a field :

<b>BEG01 353 Transaction Set Purpose Code</b>

I know we use transaction we60 in R/3 but not able to locate any idoc field with description "Transaction Set Purpose Code" .

<b>Is there some other way ? How is it generally found out ?</b>

Thanks

Sharad

    Hi,

    Generally you will have different versions of X12 mappings. There should be a document that will explain you how are the fields related to the fields in SAP for a transaction.

    Hi Sharad,

    The Structure of ANSIX12 format is Different from that of SAP IDOC Format. So you hav eto do a Gap Analysis before you do your Mapping or try a Mapping Tool called Altova Mapforce (www.altova.com) and can download free demo enterprise version which helps in creating Mapping Programs.(This is Core Mapping used in the Subsystem Level) but you could use this for knowing the Structure of ANSIX12 Format of any Document.

    Regards,
