BAPI_SHIPMENT_CHANGE to automatically Pack


Hi ,

As we know BAPI_SHIPMENT_CHANGE does have the HU header and HU item with the option of specifying the delivery and delivery item ..But It is not doing the packing instead ,It says that HU Item to add the delivery has no changeable handling unit .

Has any one automated the packing of material into Handling units in VT02n transaction ? .The handling units are being created manually it is just that the packing needs to be done automatically ..

I have read comments of using the BDC in VT02 to pack it but i do not want to use that .

If we have handling unit header /item as parameters in the BAPI_shipment_change they how can't we use it ? If some one has implemented BAPI_SHIPMENT_CHANGE to do the automatic packing that is to create the HU item in transaction VT02n let me know ..

Also if some one could throw light on availability of these parameter in this BAPI and usage of it then it would be helpful ..Only place i saw where the Handling unit is getting filled is IDOC_INPUT_SHIPMENT .Is bAPI_SHIPMENT_CHANGE been designed just to mainatin the similarity with the Idoc structure ?
