EDI Converter

BITS_0115 – EDIFACT Converter


According to the international UN/EDIFACT standard, it means Electronic Data Interchange. So any document is defined as electronic message, consisting of a unit of data segments, and exchanged between the business associates. This way the business associates can work effectively together.


This solution adds the SAP R/3 system to the opportunity of a bidirectional communication on the basis of EDIFACT messages. Thereby a data exchange between the client’s SAP system and that of his business associate is possible in both directions. Different messages and standards can be managed at the same time and on a partner specific basis. Messages can be sent and received immediately or time-delayed.

The solution consists of several single components which provide an integrated EDI solution in a productive utilisation. Despite the wide basic functionality, this solution provides opportunities for individual and customised expansions, for example through predefined mappings. The EDI/EDIFACT Converter is exclusively implemented in ABAP/4 and is protected in the customer system by an own namespace. Thereby all modules are absolute safe against modifications and future SAP release upgrades. A secure investment for a safe future.
