    Irrespective of whether you use RFC or BAPI, if you calling from different system then, you can to specify the destination which is a RFC destination pointing to the target system.

    As far other difference concerened please do search the forum, it has been discussed many times here.

    Hi Pulagam

    BAPIs are implemented so as to be also callable remotely. In fact this is a basic feature of a BAPI since they are also considered for integration issues.

    As all RFC function modules, if you are calling it within the system, there is no need to specify a destination; and if it is an external system calling the BAPI (thus an remote-enabled FM), you must require the destination.
