Using SAP IDocs to update "further dates" information in an SAP transaction

SAP expert Axel Angeli explains how to update the "further dates" tab information in am SAP transaction through an SAP IDoc.

I am trying to find out how we update the "further dates" tab information in a shipment (transaction VT02N) through an SAP IDoc. What is the best way to do this?
There are generally two ways to do this. You can try finding a way to inject the data by using one of the SAP user exits (enhancement points) in the IDoc processing function, or the better option is certainly to write a new IDoc function that does the following:

  • Call the original IDoc function module
  • Add code logic to do the update in a second step after a successful call transaction and commit work

Making a wrapped call is usually much easier to implement.
