Hi all ,

is it possible to connect SAP to NON-SAP systems to retrieve data using RFC alone without using BAPI?

A remote function call (RFC) is the call of a function module that runs in a different system to the calling program. Although it is also possible to call a function module in the same system as an RFC, normally RFCs are used when the caller and the called function module run in the same system.

In the SAP system, these functions are provided by the RFC interface system. The RFC interface system enables function calls between two SAP systems, or between an SAP system and an external system.

The RFC- interface system is made up of the following interfaces:

· Calling interface for ABAP programs

· Each ABAP program can call a remote function module using the command CALL FUNCTION...DESTINATION. The parameter DESTINATION informs the SAP system that the called function module runs in a different system to the calling system. RFC communication with the remote system takes place as a part of the CALL FUNCTION command.

· RFC function modules in an SAP system must be proper function modules and must be registered in the SAP system as remote.

· If the calling program and the called program are both ABAP programs, the RFC interface provides both communication partners. The calling program can be any ABAP program, and the called program must be a function module that is registered as remote.

No, its nt possible.

We need BAPI to communicate btwn SAP and NOn SAP system.

RFC is possible only within SAP Systems.
