    Hi Jenni,

    you need help of your functional consultant at every point so that you can clearly determine your application defnitions and configuration.

    1. Go to transaction NACE. There you can see all the generic applications listed. Find out the one relavant to your idoc type from the functional person. If you select your relavant aplication, and click on the "Output types", you will see a list of all the output types for each business transaction defined for that application.

    2. Again, ask your functional consultant, as to which output type is configured for your business transaction. Select that output type and go to "Processing routines".

    3. There you will be able to see different ways in which the idoc can be triggered. Most of the time , we use processing routine "A (Distribution (ALE))". There you will also see the report which will trigger the idoc.

    4. All the above mentioned customization is to be done by the functional consultant (or by technical after strictly seeking the permission). Once the output type is set, you go to the business application which is triggering your idoc and assign the output type & process it.

    Also, you can configure the output type so that it will be created and processed automatically once the document is created. you can check with your functional consultant for the same.
