Change iDoc Status by Standard Program

When working with iDocs, you may come across situations where you need to change the current iDoc status. iDoc Status change requirements may arise due to different reasons such as reprocessing, archiving etc. But make sure you use SAP standard methods and programs to change iDoc status.

If you have a iDoc in status 53 (successfully processed), standard iDoc processing programs such as BD87 won’t allow reprocessing. You can use technical tools such as WE19 to process iDocs in status 53 but it will create a new iDoc and relationship to the application document might be lost.

Lets look at one method of reprocessing a iDoc in Status 53.

Change status of the iDoc using Standard Program “RC1_IDOC_SET_STATUS”.


Go to se38 transaction and run the program and change the status as required.
