File Content Conversion

Hi All,

File - XI - R/3 scenario. Here the incoming file has many line items. The number of fileds of each line item is identified on its first field. Based on the first field of the incoming file, I want to select the Sender Message Type. Is it possible?

If yes, how?

Thanks,

Greg

    Greg,

    With the approach of BPM, instead of switch still you can achieve it using Conditional Interface Determination where you can select different interfaces.

    Avoid usage of BPM as it is a performance constraint.

    Hi Greg,

    U want to send different messages to same receiver?

    As I think get u r message from the outbound interface used to get data from FTP. Then pass this message to BPM and then use switch to decide the message structure .

      Hi Keith,

      1.U want to send different messages to same receiver?

      Yes, different <b>Message Structures</b>. Only 1 sender and 1 receiver in my case

      2.Yes, file is picked up from FTP..

      3. I have to read the first ield, so Message mapping should be used inside BPM??
