    Yikes. I suspect you can't do this with the BAPI. It seems that VC data tables only refer to the item number, which would be VBAP, not components. In the transaction, I'm guessing some functionality runs to explode the components first and then they can be configured. With BAPI, you have to give all the info upfront but the components don't exist at that point yet. That's just my guess.

    Here is a similar old question, you can find many more in Google on usage of this BAPI with VC. There is already a note somewhere saying that BAPIs don't work the same way as transaction, so you might be out of luck.
