invoicing nightly SD - TEXT_SYMBOL_REPLACE

We have a custom output copy of RD00 for email output.  It looks at program SAPMV60A.  It is using routine TEXT_SYMBOL_REPLACE.  We have been running nightly invoicing job for many years using program RV60SBT1. 

Some of the invoices that get emailed have &XVBRK-VBELN& filled out in the email subject line and others do not get that field filled in.  I had Basis go in and put an email address on every user that processes invoices.  So if users are creating invoices in VF01/VF04, the VBELN entry comes out fine. But nighttime processing is run by user BATCHUSER and VBELN does not come out.  I asked out Basis to add an email address to BATCHUSER. Still VBELN is blank.  So after investigating this a little, I see notes that we should be scheduling nighttime through VF06 which uses another program than my old RV60SBT1.  So I tried that, which runs in background under my name.  Still no VBELN.  But when I process under my name in VF04, the VBELN gets filled in.  We are on ECC 6.0 ep 5.

Can anyone tell me specifically where I am going wrong?  This is very time consuming on something that should be simple.
