Hi Akash,

Message Type:

A message type represents the application message exchanged between R/3 systems and R/3 and an external system. A message type characterises the data sent across systems and relates to the structure of the data called an IDOC type.

Diff. with IDOC type

An IDoc type specifies the structure of the data.

A message type specifies the meaning of the data

Diff. b/w IDOC type and IDOC

An IDoc type is the definition of a specific data structure.

An IDoc is an actual instance of data based on an IDoc type. Therefore, there can be many IDocs created from a single IDoc type.

Every idoc type will have Message Type.

It mean Idoc will be recognised By message type.

For ex : MATMAS03 is idoc type, and its message type MATAMS.

There are different message type for every master data. suppose for vendor master CREMAS is the message type, for customer mast DEBMAS like these there many message type for other type of master data.

Thanks,

Vinay

Hi,

Message explains the most important error messages and system messages displayed by the system and recommends how you should deal with these messages ("user action").

Every message has a unique message number that is assigned to a number range. You can use this number range to find out which component of the database system caused the error message to be displayed.

Message type represents the group in which every basic IDoc types must belong. A message type is conceptually the nature of the data transmitted within an IDoc.

For example, the MATMAS message type is related to material master data, Material Master. To this MATMAS message type is associated several basic IDoc types: MATMAS01, MATMAS02, MATMAS03, MATMAS04 et MATMAS05. Each basic IDoc type is able to contain essential data on material master data. MATMAS01 is the first version, each subsequent version increments the sequence number (MATMAS02, etc.) and adds fields comparing with the previous version.
