EDI: Incorrect status for inbound IDoc When Using IDOCs with LSMW

Former Member

We are creating Internal Orders in our systems with LSMW using IDOCs. Even thou the Internal Orders are created and the IDOC processing finishes with status 53 (Application document posted) our SAP Inbox is being flooded with messages saying "EDI: Incorrect status 53 for inbound IDoc" and asking us to "Complete the Work Items".

The Diagnosis for the message (sap help) is:

You are trying to process inbound IDoc 0000000001309614, which has status 53.

However, only status values '50', '61' and '64' are permitted for

inbound processing.

Does anybody know how to correct this? And, is there a way to massively Complete all the work items in the Inbox, we have 1950 messages and it would be really tedious to confirm them all one by one?

Kind Regards and thanks in advance,
