The exchange of electronic invoices when using an SAP ERP system is done using the INVOIC IDoc message type. In this article we demonstrate the structure of an INVOIC IDoc and take a closer look at the specifics, especially how the invoice data is represented in an IDoc.

Motivation for IDocs

IDoc is the short form of Intermediate Document. As the word intermediate suggests, it is an intermediate format, for the data exchange with an SAP ERP system. Using IDocs, a third-party system is able to export and import data from and to an SAP ERP system. This data might originate from systems containing master data such as debtor data, creditor data, material master records etc. Other examples include dynamic data records such as timesheets, orders or invoices.

The SAP ERP system delivers a wide range of predefined IDoc base types, which can be used for data exchange. These predefined IDocs may not fully satisfy all requirements, in which case new IDoc types can be created, exactly meeting specific customer requirements.

Understanding the IDoc Contents

In order to be able to read the contents of an IDoc, the first step is to understand its structure. Unlike other XML-based standards, Universal Business Language (UBL) for example, IDocs use short and at first sight, incomprehensible element names. One will not be able to understand them without a supporting document that explains what these abbreviations mean. As the experience with IDocs increases, the abbreviated element names will become more familiar and their meaning will unfold - even without the documentation constantly at hand.

An IDoc can exist in different forms, but usually an IDoc can be found as database entry in an SAP system, where the following tables are being used: EDIDC, EDID4, EDIDS. The EDIDC table contains the data of the control record, the EDID4 table for the data records, and the EDIDS table for the status records. Transaction SE16N may be used to take a closer look at these tables.

However, users normally use their specific transactions to view IDocs, for example transaction BD87. The picture below shows a tree representation of an INVOIC02 IDoc in transaction BD87.

As one can see on the left side of this picture, IDocs use abbreviations to name each element, E1EDK01, E1EDKA1, etc.

To check what these elements mean, the documentation of the corresponding IDoc base type must be used, which can be found in transaction WE60. This previous article explains the details in regard to the IDoc documentation.

The IDoc documentation can be downloaded as HTML file and displayed in any Web browser. The SAP ERP system always exports three data types, ending with _d, _f and _i. In order to get the best representation of the data, we recommend opening the file ending with _f, e.g., INVOIC02_f.htm. Below is an extract from the HTML documentation for an INVOIC02 IDoc.

With help from the HTML documentation, each element can easily be deciphered and the exact sequence the elements are in can be identified.

When an IDoc leaves the SAP system, an exchange file is created using the data in the IDoc tables. This exchange file comes in two formats: a text-based version and an XML-based version. Modern integration scenarios typically use the XML-based version only.

An Overview of the INVOIC02 IDoc

XML knows two fundamental concepts: XML Schema and XML instance. An XML instance is a concrete form of an IDoc, for example the XML representation of the invoice with the number 4711. An XML Schema describes the exact structure and composition of an XML instance. It defines which element and attribute sequences are allowed, which data types can be used for some elements, etc.

The following figure shows an extract of the composition of an INVOIC02 XML Schema.

With the help of an XML Schema one can check if the XML instance fulfills the requirement of schema conformity and is thus valid or not. Schema conformity is imperative if an INVOIC02 invoice shall be processed using software.

INVOIC02 IDoc in Detail

An INVOIC02 can be used in various SAP modules, e.g., on the sales and distribution side (to represent an invoice that needs to be sent to a client) or on the materials management side (to represent an invoice that is received from a supplier). Invoices also play an important part in the finance module of SAP, where the actual accounting of the invoice takes place.

Using the data below as an example, we demonstrate the different elements of an INVOIC02 IDoc.

INVOIC02 Data Example

INVOIC02 Data Example

The structure of the INVOIC02 IDoc is built below the central root node INVOIC02. The following extract shows the composition of an INVOIC02 in a shorter version.

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
 <INVOIC02 xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="INVOIC02.xsd">

        </E1EDS01>
        ...
    </IDOC>
 </INVOIC02>

The complete example XML is accessible via the following link. The example does not claim integrity of content, meaning that the structure and sequence of elements and attributes are correct. Content and values like sums, taxes, transport information are fictitious though, and show no continuous consistency throughout the file.

The composition of an IDoc can be divided into three large sections:

  • Control record
  • Data records
  • Status records

When exporting an IDoc from an SAP ERP system, only the control record and data records are being exported. Since the status record normally contains internal information from the system about the processing status, it is usually not exported.

The composition of the tree structure of an INVOIC02 IDoc is as follows:

  • INVOIC02
    • IDOC
      • EDI_DC40 – Control Record
      • E1EDK01 - Document Header General Data
      • E1EDKA1 - Document Header Partner Information

          • E1EDPT2 - Docu­ment Item Texts
      • E1EDS01 - Summary Segment General

EDI_DC40 - Control Record

The control record EDI_DC40 contains meta information about the IDoc itself (sender, receiver, type of IDoc, etc.) and is mostly relevant for the correct processing of the IDoc message by third-party services. Using the control record, third-party services such as EDI providers are able to identify the sender and receiver of the IDoc, the exact IDoc type and date, etc.

Data Records

After the control record, there are data records, which contain all the data about the invoice. The data records themselves are divided into the header and the line item. Elements which have a K in their name belong to the header data, those with a P belong to the line item data. Elements with an S belong to the sum data.

E1EDK01 - Document Header General Data

The E1EDK01 invoice header contains general data of the invoice, such as currency, UID number of the biller and invoice recipient, weight etc.

<E1EDK01 SEGMENT="1">
  <CURCY>GBP</CURCY>
  <HWAER>GBP</HWAER>
  <WKURS>1.00000</WKURS>
  <ZTERM>0054</ZTERM>

  • Vendor order (002)

As indicated by these entries, the document number, the document date (if there is one) and the reference to the corresponding line item of the document are being provided. This is mostly relevant for collective bills, as the positions do not necessarily refer to the same purchase order or delivery document.

The element E1EDP02 is optional and can be found up to 25 times in the INVOIC02 IDoc.

E1EDP03 - Document Item Date Segment

Date references, which apply to the position record, are provided in element E1EDP03. The Qualifier IDDAT allows to identi what type of date is being used.
