Using IDOCS to sync SAP and a Non SAP system


Hi everyone,

In the current scenario users create customers in SAP. We have used change pointers so that changes to fields cause an IDOC to be generated. This is then sent to Websphere and a flat xml file representation of the IDOC is created.

My problem is around how IDOCS and change pointers handle clears in fields.

For example if i add an entry into the NAME 2 field usnig XD03 (we have a change pointer on this) an IDOC is generated and i can see my entry in the correct IDOC segment.

If i then clear that entry so the field is null an IDOC is generated but there is no NAME 2 segment.

The recieving system has no idea what field has been cleared.

Has anyone come across this??
