    Hi Koteswara,

    Value mapping means you are mapping the data of some source field to some target field.........in this mapping, you can transform the data in the format you desire for your target system. You can do a value mapping simply by graphical mapping, using UDF etc.

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    Value mapping is nothing but mapping the values of source message to the target message at the runtime.

    For Ex: Source system represents the male gender as 1 and target system represents the gender as Mr.We map the source to target using value mapping.We use a mapping look up if the representation mapping is dynamic and doesnot remain the same everytime.

    Hi,

    Just a brief notes about Value Mapping.

    <b>Value Mapping - Fix Values</b>

    The FixValues function provides a simple generic value mapping (or key

    mapping) in the Integration Repository.

    1. Use the standard function

    Conversions -> FixValues to

    link source and target element

    2. Double click to define properties

    &#56256;&#56459; Each field mapping uses its own table of key-value pairs.

    &#56256;&#56459; Filled tables can be copied to other mappings. But copied

    table is independent of origin.

    The Value mapping function provides a more specific value transformation.

    1. Use the standard function Conversions -> Value mapping to link source and target element

    2. Double click to define properties

    3. Define access keys for table entries:

    <b>Value Mapping</b>

    &#56256;&#56459; Value Mapping Context stores information on the origin of the data.

    If data is maintained in the Integration Directory, use http://sap.com/xi/XI

    &#56256;&#56459; Agency and Schema for sender and receiver messages. Any arbitrary

    string value can be used.

    Semantically identical information is collected in “Value Mapping Groups”

    &#56256;&#56452; Value Mapping Groups can be maintained:

    &#56256;&#56459; in the Integration Directory

    �� by sending data to Message Interface “ValueMappingReplication” of SAP BASIS ->SAP BASIS 6.40 -> http://sap.com/xi/XI/System

    &#56256;&#56452; Following entries are required

    1. Agency

    2. Schema (Namespace and Object Type )

    3. Value (the group’s representative for a given Agency – Schema combination)

    <b>Value Mapping - Mass Configuration.</b>

    Mass data can be maintained in Value Mappings tables by means of an XI Interface

    &#56256;&#56452; Based on Message Interface ValueMappingReplication of

    http://sap.com/xi/XI/System in SC SAP BASIS 6.40

    &#56256;&#56452; Configuration has to be created in Directory

    &#56256;&#56452; Provided data has to correspond to structure:

    Regards,

    Jayaram...
