XML to IDOC INVOIC02 - Handle several extensions


I have to extend the INVOIC02 format to import custom fields. The problem is, that there is already a business extenstion in use in our scenario.

I created a new Z extension and I am able to post an IDOC from a XML file with my custom fields, when I fill the IDOC Header EDI_DC40 with CIMTYPE "z_ext".

I am able to post a file with the business extensions fields as well, using the CIMTYPE "/b_ext/".

However I have to use both extensions, and when I try to post an IDOC which has fields from both , I get an syntax error in bd87 which says, that one of the extensions segments is not identified. I can't pass the field CIMTYPE two times in the EDI_DC40 Header, which seems to be the problem.

Does anybody have a suggestion how to promote in the xml that I am using two (or more) extensions?

Best regards

    Sorry for the confusion. I try to make it clearer.

    We already have one extension to the INVOIC02 Type in use, which is implemented by a third party company. Thats what I am refering to as business extension and calling it "/b_ext/".

    We have the need to extend the Type further now, with our own fields, which would be a second extension named "z_ext". The fields of the business extension are still required though, so both extensions would need to be used at the same time.

  • Sorry, it's still not clear what the issue is exactly... You can have multiple extensions for a basic IDoc type. For each extension, you'd need to create an extended type. In the extension, you'd include the custom segments. That's how the process works, in a nutshell. To "combine" the extensions I'm guessing you'd include the combination of all the relevant segments. So what exactly is the problem? I'm confused...

  • Can't you just use different fields names - I'm as confused as Jelena.
