How to use BAPI_OBJCL* to set classification data for Techn. Objects - PM ?


Good afternoon !

I´m working in a project to integrate some legacy system with the ECC 6.0, and I need to do some activities like, create functional locations and equipments in SAP PM, I have done this creating Z RFC modules that call bapis like BAPI_FUNCLOC_CREATE and BAPI_EQUI_CREATE, but these BAPIs doesn´t fill classification data, so, in a first moment, I solved this using BDC, but I would like to solve these needs using standard BAPIs if possible.

To solve the classification, I tried to do it using the BAPI_OBJCL* BAPIs(BAPI_OBJCL_GET_KEY_OF_OBJECT, BAPI_OBJCL_CREATE_KEY), but I didn´t find any example of using these bapis with technical objects, so I tried to test the BAPI_OBJCL_GET_KEY_OF_OBJECT in a first moment and, when I call it passing '003' as classtype(003 is the classtype for the functional locations), this bapi returns me "Class type 003 requires additional objects"(the same occurs if I try it with 002, for equipment). What means this message ? Need I to do some customization in img/spro, or cannot these bapis be used with PM technical objects ?

Thank you for your attention,
