EDI: Partner profile inbound not available Message no. E0337


Hi Friends,

I am facing very wiered issue for incoming vendor frieght invoice. When the IDOC is sent to SAP from the edi subsystem, it gets posted with status 56 and error message

EDI: Partner profile inbound not available

Message no. E0337


An inbound partner profile could not be found with the following key:


This involves the key fields of table EDP21:

-SNDPRN partner number of sender

-SNDPRT partner type of sender

-SNDPFC partner function of sender

-MESTYP logical message type

-MESCOD logical message code

-MESFCT logical message function

-TEST test flag

I have created the partner profile in WE20 for Partner type LI, partner role VN and process code INVL, message type INVOIC, message code MM. I have also checked the entry in TABLE EDP21 and the entry exists.

When I open the IDOC in WE19, and click on standard inbound TAB it says partner profile not maintianed, however when i click on the control record it opens a dialog box, where we have all the entries for partner profile and when I just click on any field in the dialog box and click continue and when again click on standard inbound it say partner profile maintained.

None of the data is changed in the IDOC control record, I just click on any field and it finds the partner profile.

Please let me know your thoughts, what could be possible reason and a solution.
