It always comes in as '00000000001'. I have asked the Gentran folks to shut down Datamanger and right after the mapping tell me what is in there, if it's blank, then I am trying to determine since the port is an Trfc port if datamanger calls "IDOC_INBOUND_ASYNCH", if datamanger is calling this RFC, then somewhere in there it must be putting '000000001' in the serial filed of the control record.
I need a way to debug this. I guess I could use se37 and fill out the tables manually then debug it that way. I was hoping you might have some ideas. Any suggestions?
So to check who is responsible for the serialization data, you may simple set the partner profile for the transaction to "BATCH PROCESSING" (WE20) so that the IDoc will not be processed automatically. When you received the IDoc check it with WE02.
To do a more specific debugging of it, you can replicate the IDoc with WE19, clear the serial field and then process it via "standard input".
Alternatively, you can try to import the IDoc from file. Get the IDoc from Gentran as an ASCII file and call IDOC_INBOUND_FROM_FILE. (report: RSEINB00)
