control record in File to Idoc
i am new to XI and now learning File to Idoc scenario.
after going thru some forums and blogs i found that while mapping the control record EDI_DC40 in the idoc should be disabled.
my question is will this control record be disabled forever or should the proper data be filled at the runtime.
help me in understanding this concept plz.
Points will be awarded

The control record acts as router. This control record has information like which is message type, Idoc type, sender port etc. [http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/13/95244269625633e10000000a155106/content.htm ]
The control records need to filled since data in the Idoc has to be filled accurately. But again it is not necessary, XI has option to fill the control records by itself at runtime using receiver determination
