LSMW Methods - BAPI and IDOC - why used together?

Hi,

There are four mathods available in LSMW:

- Direct Input

- BAPI

- IDOC

- BDC

Among these BAPI and IDOC always go hand in hand. In case we choose to go in for IDOC, we will have to enter the partner profile settings for an inbound IDOC. But in case we choose to go with th BAPI method, even then we have to mention the inbound IDOC settings.

I would like to know why is this so; if there is a provision for two separate methods, why do we need to use IDOC if a BAPI is selected.

Please advise.

Regards,

Namrata
