one output file against multiple idocs

Hi,

SAP is sending material master details via SAP standard idoc to an external system via PI.
Currently it is 1 Idoc created in r/3 and sent to PI. PI sends one flat file to the 25 external systems via FTP (ratio 1:25).

We are running in huge FTP open/close performance issues when mass materail master idocs are sent to PI.Instead we want PI to collect all the idocs (say some 'x' numbers) and create one output file. Is this possible in PI. Please advise.

Thanks,
SSK2

Yes it is possible.

you have two choices here. you can either set up SAP to collect data and send in fewer iDocs by way of a scheduled program (this is possible for other objects) or you can use a BPM to collect the iDocs and then send in bulk.
