Moving data from a non-SAP source into SAP using VB and RFCs or BAPIs

What is the best way to move data from a non-SAP system (e.g database) into SAP using Visual Basic 6.0 and RFCs...

OR BAPIs? Is moving a record set (multiple records) an option or is for example calling 1 BAPI multiple times via a BAPI control a better option? I have been told it is, but resource- and time-wise this does not seem like a good idea.

This is not a question that can be answered on the technology level. To update data in SAP you need to find an RFC-enabled Function Module that accepts parameters that it will use to update the appropriate DB tables. There is no generic solution for this.
