    Hi Rajesh Kumar,

    If it is in EDI format, request for the EDI structure. It may be EDI X12 810 Invoice or EDI 810 Invoice document which will have data organized into segments and data elements. Each segment contains at least one data element. Each data element is a data field. Examples of data elements on the Invoice include vendor number, item, quantity, price per item, street address, city, state and zip code, just like on a paper Invoice. Any one company will use a small subset of the available choices within the ANS X.12 or UN/EDIFACT standards. An EDI system is necessary to process their EDI documents into a back office system or into human readable form.

    Hi,

    Check whether the EDI message control (or output control) setting are configured properly.

    Check the link - http://www.erpgenie.com/sapedi/messagecontrol.htm

    You can also refer to SAP help for more details: http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw2004s/helpdata/en/c8/19878343b111d1896f0000e8322d00/frameset.htm

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Rajesh,

    In EDI process, there will be involvement of EDI subsystem which converts the raw file ( which was sent by customer or vendor) into IDOC file. There will be mapping instructions design which will convert the raw file into IDOC file. This will be pushed into the corresponding servers through the ports. There are different file structures : EDIFACT, VDA, X12, ODETTE etc. Each file is identified by the sender and receiver ID's and message type and version of the file.

    U need to create partner profiles and in this u need to give the output type and application document types and u need to create condition records.

    Regards
