Import, Export, and Import/Export Parameters


Once you have identified the BAPI you want to invoke, you need to determine which optional and mandatory parameters you can or must declare. BAPIs have Import and Export parameters, as well as Imp/Exp (table) parameters which are used both for data import and export.


To display the BAPI parameters:

  1. In the BAPI Browser, open the Business Object and the node Methods, as described in Locating BAPIs Using the BAPI Browser.
  2. Open the node for the BAPI that you want to use, then open the node Parameters.


A list of all the parameters of the BAPI are displayed. Choose the appropriate icons in the BAPI Browser to display more information about the individual parameters. Select Utilities ® Color key for information about the meaning of the individual icons in the BAPI Browser.
