How will you get IDOC qualifiers and their actions?

Abhijit.JPG

Description: We all have heard about the IDOC qualifiers but many of us don’t know how to get these IDOC qualifiers and their actions. If you want to find out the possible actions for a given IDoc qualifier (or) possible values for a given IDoc field without getting into ABAP code, Then

how will you able to do that? As we know that a qualifier allows a field to maintain different type of data.

Lets say, if ‘Order’ is a field with Qualifier, then this Order can hold

1. Sales order.

2. Purchase order.

3. Production order etc.

Similarly, if ‘Date’ is a field with Qualifier, then this date field can hold

1. Delivery date,

2. Purchase order date,

3. Sales order date etc.

So, as a result, Qualifier is used for minimizing the space so that one can use a field for different purposes.

Solutions: To get IDOC qualifiers and their actions, we will take example of ORDERS05.

Step1: Go to Transaction code WE30. Enter ORDERS05 in the Obj. Name:

Click on display: It will show all the segments of the IDOC.

Now select one IDOC, lets say E1EDK14. Double click into it.

      Nice reference.  These qualifiers have caused me some headaches while processing IDOCs in XI!

      Other way to see the Qualifiers is in IDoc documentation tcode WE60. Please refer link .

      WE60: Goto menu bar option --> User settings --> Check field Value Output.

      I prefer activating F4 in transaction WE19 (or while reading an IDoc contents).

      But it was nice to recall to check the domain's values range.

      Hello. Is there a way to customize the qualifier SAP uses?

      I'm missing some qualifiers in an invoice. The qualifier is there, but it is not used in the IDOC. Is that customizable? Thanks in advance!
