EDI questions- new ALE model

A reader asks about setting up a new ALE model in SAP.

I'm using the book, 'The SAP R/3 Guide to EDI.' In Quickly Setting up an Example. I have the following problems:

1. I've created with SM59 RFC destination - INTERNAL, but where can I set it as NONE?

2. When I try to create port WE21->tRFC->New Entries I can't do this because of many errors like, "Specify the key within the work area" or when I try to use RFC dest as INTERNAL I get the message, "logical destination INTERNAL is incompatible with port type 'Transactional RFC'"

3. Where or how can I declare a new ALE model with SALE I hang on this chapter.

I'm using a v4.5 SAP R/3 system.

1. The misunderstanding is probable: NONE is an RFC destination. You can assign the RFC destination to an IDoc port in WE21.

I think you want to know how to make INTERNAL point to yourself. Simply declare the RFC destination as R3 destination and make no entries for destination host and system number.
One hint: if you try the examples in 4.5 you can also use the predefined destination WORKFLOW_LOCAL as receiving destination.

2. I think in 4.5 you cannot assign the port number yourself. Make no entry in port number and let the system generate the number.

3. EDIT ->> MODELVIEW ->> CREATE should work. Does it?
