Is it possible to use ALE with Same client...when PO created and send message to IDOC. Than come back the same client to create the SO? As i know, it is possible to go for another client or system. I am not sure is it possible in the same client and also any limition about this?
A purchase order is created in company code 1000.
Then using ALE,the system will generate an Idoc to transfer data to another company code 2000.And the system will generate corresponding CustmerOrder(SO) in company code 2000.
Configuring the ALE/Idoc scenerio for the same client is very much possible, because you would defining the same client/port but might used different message type. But so you think this will help you rather than that if the clinet is same rather than configuring the ALE/IDOC setting why not write a piece of ABAP code finding the proper USER EXIT/INCLUDE .i.e. when a PO is created with company code ABC then that USEREXIT will trigger which will send those data to another company code. The user exit can easily be identified by the functional guys.
Mostly the ALE/Idocs scenerios are used when we have multiple clients or multiple system.
Hope this helps.
Thanks a lot for your reply. I do understand that ALE is used between different clients but here we have a strong business requirement to use ALE if possible. And as you said ALE is possible within same client, could you please guide me the steps or process how to configure the same.
I have one requirement regarding EDI IDOC, we are planning to perform EDI functionality for incoming invoice from vendor's. The message type we will be using is INVOIC and Basic type is INVOICE01.
however we dont want to directly post the invoice in SAP, once we received an idoc from vendor's system, we dont want to directly post the invoice document we want to park it first.
Request you all to please let us know whether it is possible to park the idoc.
