Change or insert a vendor classification data.

My english is not so good, let me try... I can change or insert a classification data for a vendor in the transaction XK01 and XK02, but I need do this by ABAP code. I tryed to find some functions... nothing! I tried to debugg the standard code of transaction XK02, but the functions what I found had not been useful.

Anyone knows any BAPI or function that can do this??

If you mean that you need to know what BAPI's a particular tranx uses, which I can only assume that's what you mean, then you should access the code behind the transaction and search for 'CALL'. That normally is the standard method that think that most people use.

Suppose you want to find the bapi for creating a sales order, you usually use transaction VA01 for this.

1. Find out the package of the transaction.

Start Va01 go to system --> status.

Double click on transaction

Package is VA

Open this package in SE80

Open business engineering-->Business object types

Find the BO which sounds the most appropriate

I would suggest BUS2032 Sales Order

Double click.

Open methods.

Find the released method with from data or something similar in the name

, Createfromdat2

Position the cursor in it and click the program button

Scroll down to find the bapi used in this method

With this way you can also find out programs and FM's

2. Start va01 go to system-->status

Double click transaction VA01

Double click on package

Read the application component. (this is SD-SLS Sales)

Then open the transaction BAPI

Sales and distribution>Sales>sales order

=/ nope... I can't find any bapi...

I want to only modify a part of the vendor, this characteristic, perhaps has a function that makes this. I saw in some forums the BAPI_OBJCL_CHANGE, but I do not know if it serves, because I want to modify the characteristic of a vendor, like in XK02 --> Environment --> Classification.
