ALE- serialization

Hi ,

I am looking for help in this scenario.

I guess In the INbound process of ALE .

It will start processing Idocs in the way it receives or we can say according to the time stamp.

In a nut shell First In First Out.

(correct me, if i am wrong).

Is there any place we can change this?

I want to make LAST In First Out (for processing).

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Satheesh,

    either I don't understand your question or you have some weird scenario. Serialization is a process to ensure that you don't overwrite newer data with older ones. E.g. if you have a material master interface and one IDoc failed, but in the meantime you received another IDoc for the same material that processed successfully, you don't want to re-process the old one and overwrite the new data.

    Well, but since you asked, anything's possible. I don't think within standard SAP you can accomplish that (i.e. just by configuration or some nice program). However, it is fairly simple to write a custom program that selects some IDocs, sorts the IDoc numbers into the desired order, and finally calls a standard SAP program for (re-)processing IDocs.

    Hope this helps.

    Best wishes, harald
