file adapter query

A custom XML document containing vendor information is picked from the file system by file adapter. The message is mapped to XML-IDOC format and then routed to the IDOC adapter

While generating the IDOC in the receiver system the IDOC goes in error status 56.

In this scenario is it not necessary to create partner profile and distribution model which i have not created.

Kindly suggest what could be the problem.

You always need a IDoc partner profile (transaction WE20) to get IDoc in and out of SAP R/3. All the SAP XI IDOC adapter is doing to passing IDOC-XML data to SAP in metdata using an RFC function module (either INBOUND_IDOC_PROCESS, IDOC_INBOUND_ASYNCHRONOUS or IDOC_INBOUND_IN_QUEUE) or receiving the IDoc data and converting into IDoc-XML
