How to copy IDOC (with data) from Production to DEV??

HI All,

I need to replicate a scenario in SAP R/3 Dev.

Actual IDOC is in Production along with data. I need to copy this data and test it in DEV.

Is theer a way to do it. (I do not want to use WE19, as each idoc has more than 100 segments in it).

Any smart and fast way of doing it.

Appreciate your help.

    A simple solution would be to export the production idoc as file by configuring the File Port in the R3 system. U may then see it in tcode AL11. These files could be directly imported in Dev R3 system.

    • We21 to create File port


      1.1. Create a file port

      1.2. Use partner profile (we20) to send the Idocs to this port also.

      1.3. The idocs using this port will be donloaded as a "File" on the File system of the production server


      2.1. Copy the files created in step 1.3 above to any location on File system of Dev server. (A manual process - by sharing folder or anything)

      2.2. Create File port

      2.3. Create outbound partner profile to import the idoc from the

      folder at file system created at 2.1

      Idocs are npw ready to use 😊
