Hi All,

We are configuring a Output type which will trigger a idoc (Invoice Idoc). This idoc needs to be transmitted to PI which will further forward it to a third party.

However I am doubtful about the Transmission medium that needs to be selected in the Output type definition. It has the following options (Tab: Default Values)

Print Putput




Distribution ALE

etc etc...

I am interested in EDI anf ALE from the above options, but am not sure what is the difference between EDI or ALE ??

Please share your thoughts.
