Problem with IDOC structure update


I have a problem with an update in the IDOC structure and the depending mappings.

I have an z-extension of an SAP IDOC and SAP did an update in the MAX-occurence field (9 --> 99)of a segment.

I have double checked my extensio in ABAP and then I imported the new strctures into PI (7.11).

In the IDOC XSD I can see the changes in maxoccurence=999 now.

I also can see this maxoccurence in the corresponding message mappings.

But when I process a message mapping and try to create and IDOC with this occurence of this segment >9

then the mapping does not create more then 9 segments.....

Only when I edit the message mapping and save it, then it works correct.

But I have defined about 20 messages depending on this extension and a lot of message mappings

I want to avoid to update all these mappings (about 50) now and to transport them.

Maybe I am wrong, but I remember on PI 7.0 I just had to import the new IDOC structures...and all depending mappings work fine.

Is there anybody having the same problem?

May somebody check on 7.0 or 7.10 if there is the same problem?

best regards

    Did you deleted the existing metadata in IDX2...where it will have the metadata of the old idoc..

    delete the existing metadata and rerun your scenario and check the same...
