The paper is concerned with the Cauchy-Nicoletti boundary value problem for the generalized ordinary differential equation \(dx(t) = dA(t) \cdot f(t,x(t))\), \(t \in [a,b]\), \(x \in\mathbb{R}^n\), \(x_i (t_i) = C_i\) \((i = 1, \dots, n)\), where \(A\) is a matrix function of bounded variation, and \(f\) is a vector function belonging to the Carathéodory class. Moreover, the sequence of auxiliary problems \(dx(t) = dA_k (t) \cdot f_k (t,x (t))\), \(x_i (t_{ik}) = C_{ik}\) \((k = 1, 2, \dots)\) is considered. The author finds sufficient conditions providing the solvability of the Cauchy-Nicoletti problem and the convergence, as \(k \to \infty\), of solutions of these auxiliary problems to the original one. Additionally, a method of successive approximations is proposed to reduce the solution of the original Cauchy-Nicoletti problem to the sequence of the related Cauchy problems.
