    Hi

    A perticular object/field could have different interprtations from applications to applications and Business to Business. For e.g Suppose a particular document XYZ has an identity code 001 in one application or may be in one orgnization. But the same document could have different ID in different applications.

    With the help of Value Mapping you could map these IDs with each other, thus while transaction of the data XI will act as an smart mapper to pass the Application specific values.

    we have two types of conversions

    Fixvalues : create local table to perform value mapping

    Value mapping : Define jump to value Mapping Table of

    integration directory.

    Check this links then you will get more information

    Hi,

    I would like to add on to whatever Venkat has said.

    We use Conversions when the interpretation of a field is different in Source and Target Messages.

    Fix Values : Here we will provide the source and the target interpretations in the Mapping itself i.e during Design time

    ValueMapping : In this we will be maintaining a Value Mapping Table in Integration Directory. So in effect we are providing the source-target interpretation during Configuration time.

    One Important advantage of ValueMapping over Fix Values is we can refer the ValueMapping in more than one mapping.

    For example if we have the same set of values of Source and Target being used in different mappings. We can go for Value Mapping instead of Fix Values.
