Mohan Ram,

This is not to confuse you. But, there is another thing called <b>IDoc Type</b>.

<b>IDoc Type</b> and <b>IDoc</b> can be compared as a class and its instance.

<b>IDoc Type</b> is the class, where as <b>IDoc</b> is an instance of the particular IDoc type.

Apart from the above two, <b>Message Type</b>(in this context) tells the application.

As Michael told <b>Message Type</b> tells the type of data thats being carried by an IDoc.
