serialization of Z message type

Former Member
0 Kudos


We have a Zprog pulls the file from unix and creates the idocs.. it creates multiple types of idocs. The message type is also customised(Z).

The issue is that when idocs are created, they are processed out of order causing the updates to assets to be out of sync.

My analysis is in the Zprog SERIAL field of Control record is not filled with timestamp.

Will filling this SERIAL field will solve my issue?

Also coding help to populate the SERIAL in this format YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS

Any small or big clue is appreciated and rewarded.
