BAPI45 is nothing but BAPI browser.The transaction BAPI used to be BAPI45 in versions earlier to 4.6A.But then it has been changed.

For finding the right BAPI, the best transaction available is BAPI45.You can come to this tcode via Tools ® Business Framework ® BAPI Browser.




By Expanding the relevant nodes and sub nodes, you can find the different BAPIs available and the parameters that needs to be passed to these BAPIs.

To be more elaborate, expand the nodes and sub nodes of each Business area until you reach the Business object.
