Remote Function Module for Vendor Master creation

Former Member
0 Kudos

Dear Forum Members,

There is a BAP function module BAPI_VENDOR_CREATE which calls SAP transaction XK01. Due to this, this Remote Function Module (RFM) cannot be called from a Java Application that uses SAP Java Connector.

Is there any other remote function module available in SAP for creating vendor master record so that it can be called from non-SAP development tools such as Java using SAP Java Connector or Microsoft Visual Studio .NET tools using SAP .NET Connector?

Eagerly expecting favourable reponse.

Hi Prakash,

you can use FM 'VENDOR_INSERT' , However its not remote enabled you need to copy to Custom BAPI and make it as remote enabled.

Apart from the Vendor creation BAPI, you may need to use some other BAPI's for Adress updation and Bank details Updation.

Please refer the link for some more information [;. The same problem is mentioned there and was solved.
