    Hi,

    In this case you need to import the idoc once agin from the Source system which contains your extended idoc segments..

    also if there is no change in the root structure of the message then the mapping retains in the message mappings...

    any how take a back up of the same and try with the new idoc message structure.. also if you have already executed the scenario then delete the metadata laoded in IDX2 transaction for this idoc type...

    as I still see the old structure and I *want to keep all the existing mapping do not want to refresh everything* 

    both of them seem not possible at the same time!

    If the IDOC structure is changed in such a way that more child nodes are added at the end (i.e. after the existing nodes) under a parent node then mapping wont be affected.

    If child nodes are added in-between the existing nodes then the mapping will be lost....nothing can be done in this case.

      Yes you are right , I changed the message type in Message mapping from standard to that of extension and it preserved the earlier mapping... Now I think I will need to do the same with the rest...Hopefully it will come out of the other end..

      Thanks.
