Hi I am begining to use IDOCs to translate them to EDI format, I need to see the IDOC's as a flat file so I can input the IDOC into my translation tool, my question is how can I get the IDOC as a flat file?, is there an export feature in SAP that I can use?, do I need to setup an FTP to get the files?, any suggestion and advice will be appreciated, thanks Alex

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

In the EDI message type for the logical system you need, you must set the receiver port as file (es: “EDISAP”) with the transaction WE20.

    Hi , In order to create Idocs as a flat file you have to configure the partner profile accordingly. The partner profile is maintained via transaction 'WE20'. You have to create a profile for a specific partner (ie. previously named Logical System as a receiver) filling in the outbound parameters. Parameters: - Message type (ie. Idoc type) - receiver port - Idoc Basic Type The receiver port to be used must be a specific file port, previously defined via transaction 'WE21'. For more information on parnter profile configuration consult the SAP Online-help or contact me again Hope I could help T. Klose
