Vat code change, EDI file number finding and EDI file structure chage?

Hello Gurus

Our client has a plant in Europe, which has a largest supplier. We process electronic invoices to the vendor through a provider OB10 ( private company - invoicing provider ).

In the transfer of the electronic data to the invoice posting, a VAT code is added to the details, that appears to be pulling from a certain Table in the system.

I want to know from which tables this field has pulled up to the Invoice?

In continuation of the process ...I have come across an issue on EDI file structure change. I have provided with the the Idoc numbers of above invoices, from the idoc numbers i need to find out the EDI file number. But when i went to WE02, WE05 with those idoc numbers i couldn't find the EDI file number( Interchange file number ref).

How can i find the EDI file number and i have to suggest the EDI team for changing the file structure in regard to the VAT code updating according to the Plants abroad function.

What are the things i need to suggest them exactly in regard to this?

Please reply me ASAP...

    The table for tax code is T076M - maintainable using T code OBCD. For EDI file number, execute T Code WE02 - enter IDoc number and execute (F8). In the right window pane, choose select layout -> change layout and pick up the field Interchange file reference. Guess this is what you are looking for.


    Go to transaction WE02 or WE05 enter Idoc number and choose execute. When Idoc data is displayed double click on Control Record in left pane. Choose Details tab. Interchangable file under References.

    You can also refer the entries in table EDIDC.

    Reference to interchange file:

    This field contains the reference number of the interchange file in which the EDI message was transmitted.
