Test an idoc posting to corresponding SAP document

We do not have EDI set up completely but i want to test a standard idoc and check where exactly in the SAP document does the idoc fields are posted to. For example if i have a shpmnt05 idoc, i want to know where in the shipment document(VT02n) do the idoc segment/fields go into? Is there any way to find that out by posting an idoc?

You can go to Transaction WE19 and Post the IDoc Manually. See if the Shipment Number is updated in VT02N. The Segment E1EDT20 will contain the Shipment Number.

To know the Exact Segment Definitions, that is to know which Segment contains what Kind of Shipment / Delivery / Partner Data, you can go to WE60 and enter the IDoc Type SHPMNT05 and press F8. You'll be able to see all the Segment Definitions / Segment Structures along with the Field descriptions.

For Example,

E1EDT20 - Shipment Header Data - Occurs only once

E1EDL20 - Delivery Header Data - May occur more than once

E1EDL24 - Delivery Item Data - May occur more than once


If this is not the answer what you want, please provide more information for an exact solution.

Thanks and Regards,
