Product Description:

SAP's standard version already provides numerous predefined IDocs (Intermediate Documents). Often, however, you must be able to transfer or process additional customer information in an IDoc which are not included in the standard version as such. These adaptations are possible through Customizing to some extent; in most enterprises, however, it is necessary to create custom developments and extensions of the standard IDoc function modules.
This book enables you to program and extend IDocs yourself by describing all details of IDoc development on the SAP side. The focus is on that part of the extension technologies that are relevant for IDocs, but the book also discusses methods that are not specifically designed for an IDoc type. Moreover, you learn about special features such as the workflow connection or the confirmation of IDoc status values. Numerous code examples and screenshots illustrate all solutions.
