IDOC --

We are about to Start our File to IDOC Scenario.

We are going to receive a file which is going to contain INVOICE records from the Vendor. We need to post them into our R/3 system as an IDOC.

We have to do the validation for the File? Then convert them into the IDOC and send it to the R/3.

For the above process what are all the Good Practices? What are all the points that I always need to remember to make the Interface successful? Specially on the R/3 side as an XI developer what questions I need to ask about the IDOC?

Thanks

    >> We have to do the validation for the File? depends ... if your business asks for validation then maybe u can do it in a module.

    >> Specially on the R/3 side as an XI developer what questions I need to ask about the IDOC?

    all you need to know is the IDOC structure and the mapping logic (it wud be provided in your Fucn. spec)

    • >> "Is the file going to contain data for multiple IDocs"? - at times a req. might be to collect IDOCS for mayeb a time duration or some other criteria and finally post a single file or the vice versa.

      Ref the link what sekhar sent too ...

    Hi,

    1. Is the file going to contain data for multiple IDocs. The you can use conceept of package and avoid using BPM.

    2. If the file has some validation wherein you need to reject the complete file , it's better to do that in the Adapter module.

    3. Rest of the validation can happen in the mapping itself.
