The example below shows how to send a STATUS IDoc.

About #

The STATUS message type is used to manipulate the status of another outbound IDoc e.g., when a subsystem receives an IDoc and acknowledges the receive with a status change. STATUS is a simple IDoc that contains only one data record.

Note: Make sure to configure your SAP system to receive IDocs.

Send a STATUS IDoc #

Follow the steps below to send a STATUS IDoc:

  1. Open a client connection to the R/3 system using the R3Connection class.
  2. Inquire the IDoc number of the IDoc to be manipulated and read the input.
  3. Use CreateIdoc to instance a valid IDoc object. “SYSTAT01” is the IDoc type for the appropriate message type STATUS.
  4. Provide receiver and sender information.
  5. Fill in the following fields in segment E1STATS:
    • the new status code (STATUS)
    • date and time (LOGDAT, LOGTIM)
    • the number of the IDoc to be manipulated
  6. Send the IDoc using the Send.
  7. Run the program using and check the result.

using var connection = new R3Connection(
    host: "server.acme.org",
    systemNumber: 00,
    userName: "user",
    password: "passwd",
    language: "EN",
    client: "001")
    Protocol = ClientProtocol.NWRFC,

Console.WriteLine("Which IDoc number would you like to manipulate?");  
string IdocNo = Console.ReadLine(); 
Idoc i = connection.CreateIdoc("SYSTAT01","");
// Fill Message Type 
// Fill Information about IDoc Reciever 
i.RCVPRN = "PT4_800"; // Partner number 
i.RCVPRT = "LS"; // Partner type 
// Fill information about IDoc sender 
i.SNDPOR = "ERPCONNECT"; // Partner port 
i.SNDPRN = "ERPCONNECT"; // Partner number 
i.SNDPRT = "LS"; // Partner type

// Fill the right fields in the segments 
i.Segments["E1STATS",0].Fields["LOGDAT"].FieldValue = "20210901";
i.Segments["E1STATS",0].Fields["LOGTIM"].FieldValue = "152301"; 
i.Segments["E1STATS",0].Fields["STATUS"].FieldValue = "12"; 
i.Segments["E1STATS",0].Fields["DOCNUM"].FieldValue = IdocNo; 
Console.WriteLine("IDoc sent"); 


The status code of the manipulated IDoc increases from 3 (Data passed…) to 12 (Dispatch OK).
