Problem creating extended IDOC

Former Member
0 Kudos

Hi Experts,

I am currently working on CRM 5.0. I need to create segment and attach it to the standard basic IDOC type CRMXIF_PARTNER_SAVE01. I am able to create segment in WE31 but i am unable to add that to the basic standard IDOC type.

It is displaying message "Action is not possible for generated idoc types".

Is there any other way to add this segment to the standard IDOC.

It will be great help if u can send me some documents on this...

You cannot add custom segments to the standard IDoc. You need to create an extended IDoc - go to WE30 and select Extension. Add your segments and save / release it. Then assign this extension to the IDoc type in WE82.

Search for "extended IDoc" or something similar, there should be a lot of posts already in the general ABAP forum.

Good luck!

Create Extended IDOCe using transaction WE30.

-If u want to extend idoc type which already exists then use the radio button extension(where we can add few new fields

-After this click on create button as described above. It takes you to a popup screen where you fill the description and also select the radio button accordingly and say ok

-we go to next screen select idoc type and click on create new It gives a pop up window

-Once you are done with the addition save the IDOC type and release the idoc type

<b>Goto-> Edit -> Set release.</b>

This completes the creation of Ext IDOC type.

- Then assign this extension to the IDoc type in WE82.
