The following BAPIs are quite commonly used. However, there are thousands of BAPI's around so do not regard this list as finite in any way...

The word BANK can also be replaced for: COMPANY, COMPANYCODE, BUSINESSAREA, DEBTOR (vendor), CREDITOR (customer), PO (Purchase order), REQUISITION and BILLINGDOCbut also CHARACT(characteristic).
