    Hi Loveena,

    IDoc Bundling --> the "trick" with the occurance change...i.e. Changing the occurence in SAP XI for the IDoc ....and then holding the Data for multiple IDocs ....and perform mapping

    /people/michal.krawczyk2/blog/2005/12/04/xi-idoc-bundling--the-trick-with-the-occurance-change

    IDoc Packaging --> According to my understanding ... it should be creation of a file having IDoc XML for group of IDocs using XML port ...... and then picking up at file into XI using File adapter.....in SAP XI.....

    .

    Hi

    IDOC packaging

    Multiple IDOCS are packed in to single IDOC and them on the target system they are unpacked into one

    Hi,

    IDoc Bundling is the changing the occurance of IDoc.

    In a scenario If there is a necessitity for changing the Occurance of some segment of the IDOC u have to perform this steps

    1.Import the IDoc to XI.

    2.Export the IDoc(i.e XSD format) and save it to the local machine.

    3.Make changes to the IDoc structure by modifying the XSD file in the local machine.

    4.Save it as an XSD file Itself.

    5.Import the XSD file in the IR under the External Defination.

    6.Use this XSD in your Message Interface/Mapping which is same as IDoc structure but with some changes that u have made.

    Go Thru this Blog <a href="/people/michal.krawczyk2/blog/2005/12/04/xi-idoc-bundling--the-trick-with-the-occurance-change Bundling - Trick without BPM</a> BY Michal Krawczyk where the Occurance of the IDoc is changed to 1...Unbounded from 1...999999999 by using the XSD.

    IDoc Packing is collecting of IDoc

    Hi !!

    Check out his link http://help.sap.com/saphelp_erp2005/helpdata/en/0b/2a670f507d11d18ee90000e8366fc2/content.htm

    Mass processing of Idocs refers to bundling Idocs.

    This can be acheived by setting "Collect Idocs and transfer" option in Paartner profile.

    If you want to send multiple IDOC with the same structure you can have the change of occurence ie called<b>IDOC bundling </b>...

    hi,

    I am really getting confused between IDOc bundling and IDOC packaging.

    If you see the thread list , the solution which describes IDOC bundling is given as IDOC packaging in some other solution.

    Can anybody tell me is there any difference between the two or bundling and packaging mean the same thing or is there a thin difference?

    Thanks,

    Loveena

      <b>IDoc bundling</b> is like sending multiple IDoc ...

      Ex Scenario: U have file containing Multiple Sales order and for every sales order u are generating an IDoc so in the mapping u change the occurance of IDoc. Consider that the occurance of IDoc is 1-1 and now by exporting the IDoc and making changes to the occurance as 1- unbounded in the XSD. Now by importing this xsd we can send multiple IDoc this is <b>IDoc bundling</b>.

      <b>IDoc Packing</b> is someting Viceversa to IDoc Bundling.

      Ex Scenario: Multiple IDoc each containing a Sales Order is sent to XI and we want a single file to be containg all the IDoc sales order details. So we collect all the IDoc sent by R/3 for a perticular time or condition and do a mapping to generate a single file.

    Hi Loveena

    <b>Idoc packaging:</b>

    When you import an idoc into XI you will observe the occurence of the idoc tag is only "1", which means that your msg in XI can have only 1 idoc tag.

    So if you want to post multiple idocs into R/3 based on your source structure mapping then you can increase the occurence of the idoc tag

    (1..unbound) and this is called idoc packaging.

    Idoc packaging can be used in the sender side for example in a scenario where you are reading multiple idocs structures from the same file. In this case, in the input idoc msg structure the occurence of idoc tag has to be changed.

    also have a look at this thread

    IDOC Packaging on outbound side

    <b>IDOC bundling</b>

    If you want to send multiple IDOC with the same structure you can have the change of occurence ie calledIDOC bundling ...
