Update EWM TU based on ECC Shipment

Hey Folks,

I Setup LE-TRA Integration between ECC and EWM based on SHPMNT IDOCs. We have an integrated EWM System and IDOC Transfer based on ECC shipment is working perfectly fine. I am using ECC Output Control in order to trigger SHPMNT IDOC to EWM based on Partner profiles.

Could any one of you figure out whether it is possible to send an update to EWM. This is my Scenario:

- create shipment in ERP and assign X deliveries

- send shipment to EWM via SHPMNT IDOC

- TU is created in EWM

Up to here it is working fine

- Now add another delivery to the ERP shipment

When I now send an additional SHPMNT IDOC based on the given ERP shipment I do get an error message during IDOC Inbound processing on EWM side saying that TU with the given external number already exists.

This is correct but here I want to update the TU on EWM side so that the additional delivery is also assigned to it.

Any idea about how to make this work in Standard (could not find any hint in SAP Manuals/help/community)? If yes, would it also be possible to remove deliveries from the TU based on this Approach (remove in ERP and send update to EWM)?

Thanks a lot in advance!

    We had same issue, the approach followed was to assign the new delivery to TU in EWM instead of ECC. Later when a PGI is posted in EWM, the SHPMNT05 IDOC that comes back from EWM to ECC updates the Shipment and Delivery Assignment in ECC. This is linked to the PPF /SCWM/SR_SEND_SHPMNT which is processed for TU. This way both system are in sync. But please revert back if you find a way to send update from ECC to EWM.

    Thanks for your Feedback Shashidhar.

    I considered this as a Manual Option but in our Scenario we receive Changes from our EDI Partner via SHPMNT05 into ERP. Have you ever tried receiving SHPMNT IDOC from external Partner directly into EWM?
