    Hi Jenni,

    I thought i will just share a few basic thoughts that you need to take care while doing an IDOC to File Scenario. Just see if it helps you in anyways.

    While doing an IDOC -> XI -> File scenario, The Points to noted are:

    1. You don’t need a DT, MT or a message interface for the IDOC as it itself acts as the Message Interface.

    2. You import the IDOC and use the same in your mapping.

    3. In this configuration note that you don’t have a sender agreement as you don’t have a sender IDOC adapter.

    If it is that you wanted to send an IDOC from XI (File to IDOC) , then in this case:

    points 1 and 2 will remain, but the 3 will not. You will need a sender agreement for the file and a receiver agreement for the IDOC.

    IDOC -> File scenario ref:

    <a href="/people/prateek.shah/blog/2005/06/08/introduction-to-idoc-xi-file-scenario-and-complete-walk-through-for-starters scenario</a>

    File -> IDOC ref:

    <a href="/people/anish.abraham2/blog/2005/12/22/file-to-multiple-idocs-xslt-mapping to IDOC</a>

    To be able to trigger your IDOC from the SAP ISU system, you will have to set the partner profile in we20. Select your Business System (mostly under Logical system) and then create Outbound entries for whichever IDOC you want to trigger.

    You define your basic type also in your partner profile settings, Please go thru the following links to get a better idea about partner profile:

    Hi,

    The following needs to be done.

    <b>R3 :</b>

    1. SM59 -- Create an RFC destination poitning to XI.

    2. We20 -- Create Partner Profiles.

    3. We21 -- Create a port.

    <b>XI :</b>

    <b>SLD:</b>

    1. Create a technical system pointing to the the R3 system.

    2. Create a business system poitning to the logical sytstem / client of the R3 system.

    Regards,

    Bhavesh
