7.40 breaks SAP.Functions and VBA connectivity

We have a working VBA application that connects to SAP for data. This application has been tested with the latested SAP GUI 7.3 patch.  After installing the new SAP GUI 7.40 the behavior "SAP.Functions" object changes.  We find that accessing data in tables and structures can no longer be done by field name as before.  However, using an ordinal number for the field does work!  It appears that a bug has been introduced in SAP GUI 7.40. We tested with SAP.Functions and SAP.Functions.Unicode.  Both fail the same way.

Can anyone shed any light on this?  Work-arounds?  SAP Notes?  I'll keep looking but I could use a lead on this one.

Hello Crew Reynolds,

The issue is fixed with SAP GUI 7.40 patch 2 onwards.

The issue is fixed with note number 2074926. This note has fix for both Unicode and Non Unicode version of function control.

Thanks and Regards,
