Convert IDOC Flat File into IDOC XML (Non SAP Adapter) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am using BizTalk Server 2009 and have to receive IDOC Flat File via SFTP adapter and send the same to SAP. As I am not using WCF-SAP adapter to receive the IDOCs what is the best way to convert an IDOC Flat File into an IDOC XML which can then be sent to SAP via the WCF-SAP adapter. Do I need to create a flat file schema to convert it into IDOC XML? Wouldn't the IDOC schema generated via "Consume Adapter Service" work here?

    I would appreciate any help on the same.

  • I think so, but I've never used Flat Files with SAP before.

    If you use the Wizard, then you should be able to generate the Schema for the Flat File format IDoc, then use that with some regular FILE Receive/Send Ports and the Flat File Disassembler and Assembler.
