Am new to IDOCs,I have an requirement whenever an invoice is created, after 3 hours there is no modification in the invoice then I have to send the invoice data to the outbound idoc to EDI .

    Oh dear... This just takes the cake for the most ridiculous requirement posted on SCN in 2017.

    The only thing that can be changed in an invoice is text and even that is not a best practice. All the changes should occur in the preceding documents. Invoice is a legal document and should not be modified.

    You could set the output to be processed by a background job and schedule it 3 hours after the billing process but that's about it. EDI output configuration is usually part of SD, so I'm not sure why a developer would do any of it. There is no ABAP required, standard works perfectly fine when it's not messed with.

    If you need more information then a $10 Kindle version of my book sounds like a steal. I recommend it not because it's mine but because it's short and good and is meant exactly for those who don't know anything about the IDocs.
