The following procedures need to be completed for each IDoc structure that is to be converted to an XML schema. Once an XML schema is created, multiple IDocs of the same type can be generated and sent to BizTalk Server.
For example, follow these procedures to convert the IDoc Structure for a purchase order to an XML schema. The XML schema can be used for all purchase orders sent to BizTalk Server. This procedure will not need to be completed again for the purchase order type IDoc unless something in the original IDoc structure changes (such as a new revision).
To generate a BizTalk Server specification document
Note You must first select the IDoctype to activate the Edit Type Information button.
Note For a successful schema generation, be certain you have the correct release and version information. You may verify the release and version information from the SAP Frontend application using the /n we60 command prompt. This is found on the Documentation for IDoc Types screen.
Now you are ready to send the IDoc to BizTalk Server.
