    Hi Pavani

    <u><b>Maintain the Sender R/3 System</b></u>

    Create a RFC Destination to XI using the Tcode SM59

    Create a TRFC Port and specify RFC Destination created above using the TCode WE21

    Create the partner profile for Inbound and Outbound Parameters using WE20

    <u><b>Maintain the Receiver XI System</b></u>

    Create the RFC Destination for sender system using SM59

    Create the port to get IDOC Metadata from Sender System using the Tcode IDX1. Here the Port name we are given and port name in the IDOC header will be identical.

    Maintain the IDOC Metadata using the Tcode IDX2.

    <u><b>Integration Builder (Design)</b></u>

    Create DT,MT,MI for File

    Create MM and IM

    <u><b>Integration Directory(Configuration)</b></u>

    Import the Business Systems

    - Creat the Receiver Communication Channel with File Adapter

    - Create the Integration Process.

    - Here Idoc is in the Sender side i.e., in R/3 Side so no need to create the Sender Agreement. Create the Receiver Agreement.

    - Create the Interface Determination for R/3 - > BPM and BPM - > File. Similarly for Receiver Determination also.

    Save and Activate the Change lists.

    Cheers..
