passing control records to Idoc


how can we pass control record data to Idoc?can we do that in mapping(GUI) in XI ,lets say if I am doing file to Idoc scenario.I know we can disable the control record field and use apply from concern is if we don't use apply from payload.

I have read in SDN XI takes from sender or reciever business systems as they are related to Logical systems(ref link:XI IDoc control record data source?) ,does it mean that we don't map these cotrol record fileds in the mapping(GUI)?

and also please tell me how XI can pass data from flat file to a particular IDOC?

thank you.

    you can fill the control records from the payload; ie in that case in your mapping you will specify/map the details for the control record. in this case you should check the apply from payload option in the idoc adapter.
