Generating EDIFACT messages and credit/debit notes

In our EDI Solution for SD Invoices, which would involve sending EDIFACT messages generated out of mapping the SAP IDoc type INVOIC02 to the EDIFACT fields, we also have to send credit and debit notes generated from SAP in the SD Module in the same path. We are currently planning on using INVOIC02 for doing this. Is this the right approach?

We are implementing an EDI Solution for SD Invoices which would involve sending EDIFACT messages generated out of mapping the SAP IDoc type INVOIC02 to the EDIFACT fields.

We also have to send credit and debit notes generated from SAP in the SD Module in the same path. We are currently...

planning on using INVOIC02 for doing this.

My question: Is this the proper approach? We don't want to use the Credit/ Debit advises in FI-GL to post to credits to the customer account.

Is there any other IDoc type or message type that we should be using for SD Credit/Debit Notes?

At least the approach is not wrong. If your goal is to generate EDIFACT messages, the IDoc type used is only of importance to the EDIFACT converter, whichever you use.

As long as the converter can find the information it requires to generate the proper EDIFACT type, everything you're doing is fine. If you need an EDIFACT converter integrated into SAP ABAP, have a look at http://www.smartedi.de.
