    A simple search thru Google got me the following link (the explanation is really good) or http://help.sap.com has got a clear documentation on this.

    Hello Srinivas,

    to elaborate a bit: BTE is one of three SAP customer exit techniques in ABAP. The oldest ones were actually called customer exits. The BTE are the "middle" ones. They originated within the FI application development, not the basis. Hence the name of the function modules: "OPEN_FI_...". The newest technology are the Business Add-Ins (BAdIs). They were developed by the basis and are the recommended way of providing customer exits for new development. So unless there are reasons why you should use BTEs - for example, because you are working in an application that already uses them and you don't want to confuse the customer - I recommend the BAdI technology.

    There is a class available that introduces all three technologies: "BC425 Enhancements and Modifications". You can order the course material on B2B.

    Hope this helps.

    Best regards

    Joerg
