control record in File to Idoc

hi guys,

i am new to XI and now learning File to Idoc scenario.

after going thru some forums and blogs i found that while mapping the control record EDI_DC40 in the idoc should be disabled.

my question is will this control record be disabled forever or should the proper data be filled at the runtime.

help me in understanding this concept plz.

Points will be awarded 😊

Regards

BHASKER

    Hi Bhasker,

    The control record acts as router. This control record has information like which is message type, Idoc type, sender port etc. [http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/13/95244269625633e10000000a155106/content.htm ]

    The control records need to filled since data in the Idoc has to be filled accurately. But again it is not necessary, XI has option to fill the control records by itself at runtime using receiver determination

    >>control record be disabled forever

    you don't always have to disable it but yeah in general we disable it coz we want the control records to be picked up automatically,you can map constants to control records in mapping and then in ID select the small checkbox which says "Apply Control Record Values from Payload" in IDOC receiver communication channel and the control records will be populated with your mapped constants.

    if you don't select the checkbox then you can simply disable the control records in mapping and it will be picked up from system automatically

    Thanx
