    Singu,

    If the no. of records count is small then you can directly do value mapping. If the count is more than you can store in an external database table and you can do a lookup also. Check this weblogs for some help on this:

    Hi Singu,

    Value mapping is used to map different representations of an object to each other.

    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/9202d890-0201-0010-1588-adb5e89a6638

    You can do value mapping both in IR and ID

    Hi Prasad,

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

    Go thru this thread which talks about value mapping:

    Value mapping

    Hi Prasad,

    Value Mapping can be implemented in various ways, depending on what suits you best.

    1. Graphical mapping->see the links provided in this thread

    2. Java mapping->lookups. The assumption is that the lookup values are maintaines as a 2-column table in a database

    3. ABAP mapping-> here lookup values are maintained in SAP tables, and the code in the ABAP mapping can be used to access the lookup values.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Puloma.

    HI,

    Value mapping : value mapping function to map different representations of an object to each other. You save the mapping rules for different objects in a value mapping table.

    we have two types ,

    One is Fixed Value mapping , another is Value mapping Replication

    see the below links
