Electronic Data Interchange,IDoc Interface in SAP SD Module | PDF Tutorial

The Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) component in Sales and Distribution consists of an Intermediate Document (IDoc) interface. You can use this interface for “send messages (outbound processing) such as an order confirmation through Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)” and “receive messages (inbound processing) such as a sales order through EDI”.

During outbound processing in Sales and Distribution, the system
determines output using the output determination component. The system converts
the data into an IDoc and issues it using the IDoc interface.

 

During inbound processing, the sender converts the data into
IDocs and passes it on to the IDoc interface. These IDocs are stored in the SAP
System. In a second step, the system creates the document data.
