Idoc to FTP and acknowledgement

Hi All

I have a scenario to send purchase order idocs from SAP to external vendor FTP server using XI. I have to send idocs for create PO, change PO and cancel PO using one interface (ORDERS05 idoc type and ORDERS message type). Is it good process? How does the receiver FTP server distinguishes between create, change and cancel? Is there any segment field which has values for create, change and cancel?

2) What is the best way to receive an acknowledgement back from FTP server once it is sent successfully?

Appreciate any help. Thanks

    FTP adapter doesnot support synchronous calls. If you want to do this then I think you have to go for BPM.


    Check for bhavesh reply in this thread:

      Hi Satish

      Hope the question is not clear.

      I am not saying a synchronous process here. I just need some thoughts and experiences of XI folks here who has done the same process for sending idocs to FTP adapter (create,change and delete) using one interface in XI and how did they handle the acknowledgement back ( it can be a file or a message) whatever
