    Hi,

    If you are getting a file in an xml form then you don't have to do content conversion. As SAP internally works with XML structure.

    In case we have a file which is in a .txt or any other file where the structure of the file needs to be defined for SAP XI, we use FCC. This helps SAP XI to create XML format and then map it to your MT for mapping.

    You can refer to these weblogs and links.

    hi

    FCC in sender side:

    Document name: your message type name

    Document namespace: name space of message type

    Recordset name:Parent node name

    Recordset namespace: namespace

    Recordset sctructure: child node name1,*(if your childnode occurence is unbounded)/1,child node name2,occurrence of childnode eg :1

    recorde set sequence: ascending

    Name Value

    Childnode.fieldSeparator ,

    Childnode.fieldNames name of the fieldsof thecoreesponding

    childnode

    insetead of fieldSeparator you can use field fixed length depending on your test file.

    FCC in receiver side:

    Recordset sctructure : parent node, childnode

    Name Value

    Childnode.fieldSeparator ,

    Childnode.endSeparator 'nl'

    Parentnode.fieldSeparator 'nl'
