Convert a function module into a BAPI

Our expert provides multiple techniques for turning function modules into BAPIs. It all depends on what you want to use the function module for.

I need to convert a function module into a BAPI. I don't know the ABCs of it. Can you please help me?
A BAPI is an RFC-enabled function module with some restrictions on its parameters and you will find it stored in the BOR. To make your function module a BAPI, you can either modify it to match the BAPI criteria or wrap it in another function module with the BAPI format.

If you just need to be able to call the function module from one external program -- i.e., it doesn't need to become...

part of the API -- then RFC enabling it and ensuring that all parameters are typed in the data dictionary is sufficient.
