    Hello Vivek

    You may have a look at [EDI/IDoc: How is an EDI project carried out?|]

    An EDI Subsystem (translator, converter) is required to convert the SAP format IDoc
    into the message format of an EDI Standard. You must select a corresponding product. 
    The IDoc interface is open, so that various EDI Subsystems can be added.
    SAP does not offer any EDI subsystem itself!

    We use SAP-XI as EDI subsystem. SAP-XI has not (yet) the capability of doing the EDI conversion (EDI-XML <-> EDI-flat) yet we have a simple Plugin which does the job. Alternatives are full EDI subsystems like Seeburger, Sterling, etc.)

    A valuable source of information is []
