    Hi

    Normally an output procedure is assigned to sales document type. You can see what is the procedure assigned to order type in transaction V/43.

    Using another transaction NACE, we can see the details of output procedure i.e., what output types (which may include IDOC also) are included in the procedure. All output types may not be triggered for all sales orders. It may have dependency on the customer also. For eg. Some customers need EDI (IDOC), others may prefer Fax. So this is acheived in the procedure by assigning a requirement to output type. Also this can be achieved by using access sequence and condition records for output type.

    This is to check at config level.

    To check IDOC is triggered for an sales order., Check menu option for transaction VA03 - Extras>Output>Header-->Edit. In that screen you can see what all outputs triggered for sales order.

    Reward if it helps

    Hi

    Standard SAP format for electronic data interchange between systems (Intermediate Document). Different message types (such as delivery confirmations or purchase orders) normally represent different specific formats, the IDoc types. However, multiple message types with related content can be assigned to one IDoc type: For example, the IDoc type ORDERS01 transfers the "logical" message types ORDERS (purchase order) and ORDRSP (order confirmation).
