    Correlation is used when you have multiple recieve steps in the BPM to differentiate each file.

    Consider your recive step is executed and the BPM is active waiting for the other file to comne in.

    Before the next file comes in , if another BPM is activated becuase your recived recive1 message. Now, when the next message comes in , how does XI know which BPM instance is to be used.

    Correlation is used in these cases. to corelate the messages.,

    some people name their Correlation as correlation in IP. So it means using the correlation 'correlation'.

    its like me creating a message interface by the name 'messageinterface' 😊 so finally i am using the message interface messageinterface !!!

    Hi Aarthi,

    It means the same. We correlate the message either in the Send step or in the Receive step.

    I hope u might got confused with the para heading in this help page http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/a5/64373f7853494fe10000000a114084/content.htm

    Regards
