Needed urgent clarification on FILE TO IDOC scenario

Hi Experts,

I need urgent clarification on FILE TO IDOC scenario plz clarify it

1.In FILE TO IDOC scenario after creation of RFC dest ,performing steps in IDX1&IDX2

what configurations to be done on target system?

2.In some blogs it is given that steps should be done in RFC dest,we21,we20 .

But is it mandatory to do so RFC dest and WE21 steps [OR] directly can we configure partner profile in WE20?

3.on integ server IDX2 has to be done (or) is it optional for FILE TO IDOC scenario?

Too many to answer plz clarify good explanations will be rewarded.

    Hi chirag,

    I have cleared some of my doubts but

    "3) Port though which it accepts or send." we have to create port in target R/3 or not ?

    one more doubt while defining logical system names in target system we have to define logical system name for XI system or File sender system?

    Plz clarify .

    Regards,

    Vinod.

      Hi,

      Port means its a gatway through which the data is send and accepted by the system.

      See if there is a R3 system and XI system then you need to create a logical system for XI in R3 system and in partner profile you need to select the XI logical system.

      Please read once again the configuration steps which I had mentioned that will clear your doubts.

      Thanks and Regards,

    2) RFC dest and WE21 steps are mandatoryy

    3) It is optional. It holds the metadata information which automatically gets updated.

      Hi,

      Please follow the below process for configuration:

      Pre-requisites for Inbound IDoc to R/3 from PI:

      Configuration required at Xi side:

      Go to IDX1: configure the port.

      Go to IDX2: load the DOC metadata.

      Go to SM59: Create RFC destination which points to R3 system this is require in the case where your IDOC is sent to R 3 system,

      Configiration required at R3 side:

      Maintain Logical System for PI (SALE transaction):

      Maintain Partner Profile for XI system(WE20):

      Pre-requisites for Outbound IDoc from R/3 to PI:

      Configurations required in R/3:

      Maintain Logical System (SALE)

      Define RFC Destination (SM59) which points to PI system

      Maintain Port (WE21)

      Maintain partner profile. (WE20):

      Maintain Distribution Model (BD64):

      DO let me know if you need more information

      Thanks and Regards,

    Hi Chirag,

    Thankz a lot for ur answers.But when we do configuration only in WE20 transaction then while adding INBOUND MESSAGE TYPE in PORT option what should we give there ?

    Becoz if we have to give port name there,then definetly RFC dest should be created for it?

    Regards,

    Vinod.

    Create partner profile.....

    1 . SALE in R/3 - Create Logical systems .

    2. We20 - Create Partner Profile..

    3. Assign Right Message type and processing code also in WE20 for the inbound message type..

      Hi,

      Usually what happen is when you assign an inbound or outbound message type to in the partner profile there is a prcess code attached to it.for this process code it calls a function module which is attached to it and which will fil the IDOC segments.

      Now in partner profile you define:

      1) Logical system

      2) Inbound or outbound message type

      3) Port though which it accepts or send.

      Do let me know if you need more info on the same.

      Thanks and Regards,
