    Hi there,

    This feature can be addressed by EDI IDOCS.

    External system sends an IDOC into SAP. This IDOC is processed by the IDOC processing prog. the prog calls an RFC(remote Function Call) by which the VA01 is called. This will post the information into the application doc (sales order) through BDC.

    For this you need to configure partner profile for the external system in WE20. Create a new message type (IDOC type) in WE30 defining the required segments & data mappings. Assign the message types to the partners in WE20. Also maintain the other details in the WE20 like processing codes, receiver ports, communication methods etc. You also need to specify the inbound parameters (like inbound UNIX file) for the message type.

    You can also combine IDOC with workflow. Contact your ABAP resource for further details on workflow.

    Regards,

    Sivanand
