IDoc segment version issue in ECC upgrade from 5.0 to 6.0


Hi experts,

we are in the process of upgrading our ECC environment from 5.0 to 6.0. We have quite a few interfaces which use ORDERS/Invoice Idocs in customised form. In ECC5.0 environment, we had developed a Z segment in the ORDERS Idoc and the segment release was set as 640. Everything worked fine in ECC5.0.

In upgraded environment, SAP has released new version of some segments. one of those is E1EDP01. This segment has 2 new versions in ECC6.0 environment - 007 and 008. This change in the version changes the data in the IDoc and hence interface goes in error at the EDI provider.

We have tried to use 640 as the IDoc segment release in the partner profile of the IDocs. This still gives us an issue because the 007 version of the segment E1EDP01 has release 620 and hence the Idoc picks up 007 version instead of 006 version as desired. When we change the partner profile with Segment release in the IDoc type as 46C, it gives us an issue in the Z segment saying that the IDoc segment is not released in 46C and the Idoc goes in error.

has any one faces such situation in the past? if yes, please throw some light.

Thanks in advance.
