Can We Add Some More Fileds To the Imported IDOC ??

Hi All,

Can We Add Some More Fileds To the Imported IDOC ??

If I Imported IDOC to IR. But I Want to Add Some More Fields To IDOC.

Then Can I Go For this Process ??? Is This is Correct ???

Please Correct Me If Iam Going Wrong

1) Open the Imported IDOC in IR

2) Export it as XSD File in to your Local Machine

3) Add Necessary Fields & Save it

4) Come to IR And Import it into external definition

Is this is the Correct way of Doing ???

If Not What is the Problem in Doing This ??

Regards

Vamsi

    Hi,

    You cannot add into the import objects more fields. But you can save the Idoc structure imported from SAP and save it as an XSD. Add more fields and import it as an ED for your purpose.. Your steps are correct. Follow them..

    Thanks

    Hi

    No not at all.This is not the correct way to add some more fields.If at all you want to add more fields, you need to create a new version of the existing iDoc at the R/3 side.You must ne knowing about Basic and Enhanced iDocs.Then import the iDoc you have changed.After importing you cannot make any changes to the existing structure.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Well the solution to the problem is you have to make changes on the R/3 end.

    Have to copy the exsisting <IDOC> to Z<IDOC> and then add segements to it.

    Yeah you need to import the Z<IDOC> in XI.

      Hi

      XSD is not related to R/3, so why will the changes be reflected there.

      Modifying an xsd is a personal requirement.When an existing xsd does not have all fields you have, you will add, remove, etc according to your needs.

      Thanks

    Hi,

    Generally we go for IDoc enhancement or custom IDoc development for your requirement.

    I guess your approach wont work. Correct me if i am wrong.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi all,

    This may not be the correct post to ask this question, but hopefully someone will be kind enough to answer my question or point me in the direction to obtain the answer I need.

    Question = I have a current message mapping where I received an xsd for the target data and I am using an Idoc for the source data.

    The new requirement is to add new fields to both the source Idoc and the target xsd.

    I am new to PI and have tried to find information on how to add new fields without losing the current mapping code I have in place.

    These are the new field I need to add to the target xsd:

    <reference>

    <type>MaterialGroupDescription</type>

    <value>Footwear Components</vale>

    </reference>

    I understand that the Idoc will need to be updated in SAP, once done how do I get the updated idoc with the new field to show in my current map?

    I have been unable to find a reference document explaining this process.

    also how to I update the target with a new field so that it shows in my current map, I have not been able to find a reference document that describes this procedure.

    Thanks in advance,

    Keith
