Q

Message type for a self-billing invoice

A reader hopes to send ERS output (self-billing invoice), which generates IDocs with Message Type SBWAP, to suppliers using EDI X12. Which EDI message type (ANSI X12) works best? Axel Angeli offers advice.

I have a question about SBWAP message type and EDI. I am looking to send ERS output (self-billing invoice), which generates IDocs with Message Type SBWAP, to suppliers using EDI X12. Which EDI message type (ANSI X12) can I use to send this? Do you know of any company that sends SBWAP to suppliers?
Self billing is usually done via FM IDOC_OUTPUT_GSVERF and IDoc type GSVERF01 . The matching ANSI X.12 transaction is 810 (invoice/credit). Any of the automotive manufacturers (Daimler, Ford, Volkswagen BMW, Peugeout, Renault, etc.) use self billing intensively, and so do many of the bigger automotive suppliers in the context of central billing.
