NACE Output Type Configuration 1

Set NACE Output Type Dispatch Time for sap output message

You can process a message immediately by updating the application document or you can process it at a later time. For later processing you must use the report program RSNAST00 or a corresponding application function.NACE Output Type Dispatch Time

  1. Send with periodically scheduled job: The message is processed through report program RSNAST00. This report program can be scheduled periodically or started manually
  2. Send with jon, with additional time specification: As in time 1, but the message contains an earliest processing date and a requested processing time. The message is ignored by report program RSNAST00 before the requested date.
  3. Send with application own transaction: The message is selected and processed by application specific programs. Processing can take place online or in the background
  4. Send immediately (when saving the application): The message is processed when the application document is saved. No further processing of the message is necessary

You can specify, for example, that the output is printed or that it is produced and sent by other means, such as fax, electronic mail, or electronic data interchange (EDI/ IDoc).NACE Output Type Transmission MediumSet Partner Function

Here the last step. test you output message and check if the SAP Output processing in well done.
(For Order, par example,  try to modify an SAP order, then saved. Go to message > Header > and check the output processing if it is green )


If Message Output doesn’t appear in Header>Message on Transaction, verify these point:
– Is record conditions meet the creteria of the transaction ?
