This means you can immediately process incorrect IDocs or ones that have not yet been processed.

The IDoc details in the IDoc monitors are clearly represented in an ABAP List Viewer, enabling the user to more easily identify incorrect IDocs, analyze the cause of the error, fix the error, and then trigger processing of the IDoc again.
