    Srini,

    Yes you are absolutely right, they are versions. In each version there might be enhancement.

    Hello,

    every new version can only get new elements, but never remove elements.

    If you go in transaction 'wedi' to IDoc Documentation you can see for each version from which release on it's avaible.

    Regards

      Hi,

      As correctly said by Raj whenever the IDOC is enhanced or field is added to the existing IDOC then it is represented by new version by SAP.

    Hey

    in very crude terms you can think of IDOC's as SAP's equivalent of an EDI message,since EDI is not an SAP proprietary so inorder to keep IDOC's(SAP proprietary) up to date with the industary standards(non-SAP proprietary) enhancements are done to the existing IDOC structure and hence a new version number is given.

    Thanx
