  • Processing in bulk

To make bulk updates, use the transaction code WLF IDOC.

Consider the following scenario: You must edit 300 fields in the IDOC. Here, we’ll alter the tax code in the IDOC. For the sake of maintaining data integrity, the majority of screenshots are marked in blue.

  • Give the IDOC number that has to be updated at WE02.

  • After execution, the screen below will show up. We will now alter the values for the field MWSKZ in E1EDK04. This is the tax law. Despite being covered, the first page is visible.

The icon next to E1EDK04 is below.

  • The screen below will appear. This has major significance. This screen’s values must be copied and pasted into the WLF IDOC screen for processing. Then and only will the changes take place.

  • Enter the IDOC number in the WLF IDOC tcode. Execute.

  • Enter the values from the third screen into the fields below. Execute.

Note: Leave the number of SAP segments box blank if you need to alter numerous values in one idoc.

For instance, if you need to alter 100 cost centres in one iDoc, leave the Number of SAP Segment box empty. Every cost centre in IDOC will alter as a result. When you enter a number, only that cost centre and not others will change.

  • If the data entered above are accurate, the below screen will appear after execution. signifies that data are modified and processed.

  • The screen below will appear.

  • Go to WE02 now and look at the IDOC. If you look, MWSKZ is now 2. The tax code was altered.

I’ve made a folder with my name in it down below. I’ve made a file called idoc123.txt.

The notification below will show up when you choose the import folder and file. Select Yes.

There will be an Idoc transfer message.


Visit CG3Z. You see two options below. target file and source file.

Select the file you created on your desktop in the previous step as the source file.

VISIT WE19. Enter the name as it appears below. Execute.

The screen below will appear. Simply select Standard Inbound.

Enter the key.
