    Incoming IDoc are referred as " INBOUND". Where as Outgoing as "OUTBOUND".

    Inbounds can be for anything like - MM (PO), SD (SO), FI (Customer / Vendor invoices), etc.

    This happens when your client is using Non-SAP System in some areas. whatever the data posted in Non-SAP should be available in SAP also. That data can be normal exp, invoices, receipts, etc.,

    In case of Inbound - status 51 means - something wrong in the data which you received from the non-sap system.

    In this case you have to correct the data in the IDOC and reprocess / once again you have to receive the correct data.

    Once the data is correct, on processing that IDoc will end up with the 53 status (that means suceess)
