SAP EDI process comprises two distinct processes.

Outbound process

Inbound process The outbound process sends documents from the SAP system to a business partner (vendor, customer, bank).

The application document is created.

The IDoc is generated

The IDoc is transferred from SAP to the operating system layer

The IDoc is converted to EDI standards

The EDI document is transmitted to the business partner

The EDI subsystem reports status to SAP

The Inbound Process

The inbound process simply reverses the steps of the outbound process. The inbound process receives an EDI document (such as a purchase order response, sales order, or payment information) from a business partner (such as a vendor, a customer, or a bank) and creates SAP documents from it

The EDI transmission is received

The EDI document is converted into an IDoc

The IDoc is transferred to the SAP layer

The application document is created

The application document can be viewed
