SAP EDI Outbound Process without Message Control Payment Order

Electronic data Interface with out message control for SAP is a way of paperless data transmission and here we are going to discuss that with an example of payment order.

This post is the continuation of above link and here we are going to discuss regarding preparation phase of process.

Identifying Business Partners for EDI outbound process in SAP :

You must identify the business partner (vendor or bank) to whom you are sending the business document. The vendor number is an entry from your vendor master data (transaction XK02). The partner number for the bank is stored under the EDI partner profiles section in the DME (Data Medium) view of the house bank master entry (transaction FI12).

As an EDI person, you are responsible for making sure that there is a valid entry in the EDI partner number field. If a value does not exist, you will not be able to create a partner profile.

Identifying IDoc and Message Types

You identify the IDoc type and the message type to support the processPEXR2001 (IDoc) and PAYEXT and REMADV (message ).

Identifying Workflow Parameters of SAP:

In this step you identify the organizational object (user ID, position, workcenter, and so on) responsible for handling errors associated with this EDI transaction. You can choose from several types of organizational BUSINESS objects.
The Setup Phase

After you identify the parameters, you set up the EDI components required for each transaction and the master data necessary from an EDI perspective. The master data is required before you can do some of the EDI settings. For example, you cannot create a partner profile before you create the vendor master.

Master Data Requirements

The type of master data and the required fields from an EDI perspective in the master data vary for each transaction. Your task is not necessarily to maintain the entire master data, but you should be aware of the fields required from an EDI perspective. These fields might not be required fields otherwise in the master data of ASAP.

The values in these fields populate critical information in the IDoc or are absolutely required fields in the EDI standards. For example, an Account at Vendor field in the vendor master populates the Sender field in the IDoc's control record. The cross−reference sheet will help you identify the fields that must be filled for your business needs.

Partner Settings for the House Bank

The transaction code is FI12
and the Menu Path: From the IMG, choose Financial Accounting, Bank Accounting, Bank Accounts, Define House Banks.

A bank ID is created at a company code level for every bank with which you have an account. This ID uniquely identifies the bank and contains general information such as the contact person and bank address, as shown in Figure .

The DME view in the bank master contains information about the data medium used to transfer funds. In the DME view, the EDI partner profile section identifies the partner number assigned to the bank for EDI purposes. This entry must be filled with a value that uniquely identifies the bank as an EDI business partner.

If this entry does not exist and you want to add a value in this field, you must also click the partner profile button to create the partner profile record. The system will not let you exit without a partner profile entry.

Make sure that an account exists in the bank and that details such as the G/L account and bank account number are filled in, as shown in Figure below.
