    Hi,

    Local event can be ,

    An exception that is triggered by a process control step. You define the exception handler in the block.

    A local event that is triggered by an event creator step or an event. You can use a local event to start a

    local Work flow. Furthermore, a wait step can wait for a local event.

    When waiting for a local event, the wait step is terminated when this event occurs.

    But when waiting for an event via the work flow, the event is initially received and temporarily saved by the work flow. Once the wait step has been activated, the event is forwarded to the wait step

    Hi Vittal,

    Wait for local event waits for an event that can be recognized only by this workflow. It ia called a local event as its scope is local to the workflow.

    Whereas the normal event is a business object event that can be seen and recognized by the whole SAP system. This event can have recievers outside our workflow.

    To trigger a local event you can insert as step 'Event Creator' from the 'Steps Types that can be inserted' in the workflow. Here give a name to the step, and in the 'Event Creator' dropdown choose your local event.

    Refer to the following blog for more details:

    Hope this helps!
