difference between BD87 & BD73
First question is the difference between BD87 & BD73.
- BD87 Process inbound IDocs
- BD73 Reposting IDocs
Second question is when i reprocess iDoc in BD87, then another IDoc generated with status 70, the original one has status 53. so i'm not sure the new generated one need to be deleted or changed to other status.

BD87 is used for overall status monitoring and also it gives a facility to re-process the IDoc. It can re-process IDocs in status 51, 64, etc.
On the other hand in BD73 you can only re-post/ re-process the IDocs that are in status 51 only for a specific error status, where you can give a message number or message id ( which is optional ).
Take a look at the selection screen of both the programs and you will see the difference.
For your second question :
When you edit an IDoc that has failed to post, the original IDoc is copied to another IDoc and saved in the database for future reference. so you know what the original content was and what did you change in the IDoc. You should not do anything with that message.
