Hi Anju Reddy,

Message types relate to the structure of the data called an IDOC . Message types provide the format of the data, which can be exchanged between SAP and non-SAP systems.

DESADV  --->  Delivery: Shipping Notification  " Notification
SHPCON --->   Delivery: Shipping Confirmation  " Confirmation

Best regards,
