Do I need to write my own handler for inbound processing of a quotes IDoc?

I don't find any information about inbound processing of a quotes IDoc within R/3, nor do I know if in a standard R/3 system, a function module for processing quotes exists. What do I have to do to enable inbound processing of a quotes IDoc within a standard R/3 system?

We are planning to integrate via an IDoc interface from a remote R/3 customer to and from our non-SAP system. We are planning to do this over the business connector or SAP XI by mapping to XML.

The plan is to receive requisitions (requote) and to send offers (quotes). The outbound transfer of requote is...

described everywhere (e.g. BC-SRV-EDI), and the outbound transfer of a quote as well (e.g. SDEDI).

Unfortunately, I don't find any information about inbound processing of a quotes IDoc within R/3, nor do I know if in a standard R/3 system, a function module for processing quotes exists.

What do I have to do to enable inbound processing of a quotes IDoc within a standard R/3 system?

Alternatively, where do I found more information about the IDoc interface of the MM module, like the document about the IDoc interface of the SD module --> SDEDI.pdf?

Generally, if there is no processing routine in the standard, you can write your own handler. The whole IDoc system is designed to be extended. All you need to do is write a function module that does the booking (maybe through a simple call transaction) and introduce it into the IDoc customizing. Please see my book, SAP R/3 Guide to EDI and Interfaces, to learn how to do it.

In your case, there is a handler: IDOC_INPUT_REQOTE (check table EDIFCT with SE16 for possible handlers for a message). Maybe it will help you to understand that all RFQ or Quotations are a variant of an ORDER and use IDoc types ORDERS01 … ORDERS05. The only difference is the message type that indicates the purpose of the data.
