    There should be an interface with the weigh bridge system. An option I can think of is that you can get the data, vehicle number and date wise, from the weigh bridge using the interface and store in a zee table. When the user is processing the delivery document, they can enter the vehicle number in one of the unused fields (for eg: Bill of lading) and when the entry is done delivery process BADI can be used to fetch the data from the zee table and update the gross weight field in the delivery document.

    Check with your ABAPer whether this process is feasible.

    Hi,

    You can also think about an option of using FTP process.

    For example, using user exit, details like delivery number can be sent to FTP server as text file (FTP inbox). The weigh bridge local system can download the file from the FTP server and fill the weight details and again upload the files to the FTP server (outbox). A customized Z -program can be developed in SAP system, and this program can be run in a background job at certain intervals. This background job, using UNIX scripts, can check the FTP server outbox and pull the files that are uploaded. The Z-program attached to the job, can read the file and populate the data in the delivery document (in a unused filed).

    Regards,
