Hi Network,

Yes i know i should have checked previous threads and i did but could not find the specific answer

Question 1) I see that field Int.no. is delivered free by SAP so we can make an entry of our choice either Numeric or Alphanumeric - its F1 definition says "" Number of the partner in the vendor's SAP system

Suppose we make this field value as 1000, does this value 1000 indicate that WE are represented as a vendor with this number 1000 in the IDOC senders SAP system (ME21N transaction Vendor field value = 1000)

Question 2) I also see that External partner field is delivered empty by SAP so we can make an entry of our choice either numeric or Alphanumeric. What is this field in our SAP system or the IDOC senders system

From what I understand the External Partner is a free number (PO sender) and it is actually converted and maintained as Customer Master (Created as a customer in XD01) and to this customer master we maintain the allowed Sales Area and Sales Document Type in EDSDC table

Please explain in detail

Best,Ahmed

"External partner" is the ID that you will receive in the IDoc and "Internal partner" is the corresponding ID (e.g. KUNNR) in your SAP system.

This is explained in detail in my book that costs just $10 for the Kindle edition. If you're planning to work with the IDoc interfaces it's a worthy investment, I believe.

Yes i got to check your book, small and not college style text book at all which is good

My scenario was a bit new to me

A sales order was coming into the system (PO triggered an Idoc which is Sales order create action on Idoc receivers side). The PO would normally ask the Vendor to send the material to plant and Sloc mentioned in the PO, but this case also had a Sub Contractor scenario, so the AG segment in Idoc consisted of an unknown number which was neither a customer master nor a vendor master in IDoc receiver side, it only looked like a random number which would sit in the external number and had a corresponding number sitting in Internal field (all this maintained in EDSDC table) and this was created as a Customer Master and would be the Sold to party in the Sales Order, the ship to party was however the plant mentioned in the PO but its address was that of the Sub Contractor mentioned in the delivery address tab of the PO. I was new to this.

1) I don't know if the address part only in the IDoc should be labelled as customized as per my client or is it standard design. I know Sub Vendor part is standard, PO creating a SO is standard,

2) But i didn't expect the plant to be in the sales order as the ship to party, why didn't they create a customer master account for the Sub Contractor as the Ship to party. Why did they use the plant as the ship to party and put Sub Vendor from the PO for its address?
