Hi Experts,

We are receiving orders from our customers into sap system through PI but the problem is we are getting same orders twice from

them as it is creating duplicates in our sap system.

So I thought of doing RFC look up where if that order exist in sap system I can raise exception that duplication order as occured.

But the problem is it is coming through with the same time frame like when they send order it is coming with the gap of milli secs.

So from PI side how I can handle this duplicates.

Please help me

    You can't handle this in PI lookup. If the transactions are coming in msecs apart lookup is not the approach that I would prefer. The reason I'm saying this is because your mapping program won't wait for the first IDOC to post successfully and then do a lookup on the next order do find a duplicate - it's going to be multi threaded process where each transaction executes individually. I would think this should be handled in ECC. Don't post your IDOC immediately. Change the partner profile to post IDOC by Background program and then have your ABAP program (which is responsible for posting an IDOC) to check for duplicity.

    This is just my perception. Wait for other experts advice too!

    You can use RFC lookup in the mapping and see if the record exists or not. If exist don't send the idoc , otherwise send it.
