Batch Characteristics FM "Not Released" !

Peace be Upon You All,

We have been using a function module to get the batch characteristics that are stored in MSC2N.

The function is VB_BATCH_VALUES_FOR_OUTPUT . using Batch number, Material, and Plant.

However, lately we found that in many cases,

some characteristics come from the FM with values different from those in MSC2N - on same batch and material !

and others come empty, while in MSC2N they have values !

We are using SAP HANA .

Accordingly, we sent SAP support a ticket complaining about this incident, and they said exactly:

Function VB_BATCH_VALUES_FOR_OUTPUT is not release so it's not supported

this FM is Not Released .. so it's not supported !!

so, why is it there on the system ? and why isn't it Described as "Obsolete Do Not Use" ?

Anyway, is there any FM to get the Batch Characteristics other than this FM ?!

an FM that is Released ..

please advise

To check the input parameters, see the call inside function SD_BATCH_CLASSIFICATION_DATA.

About functions not supported, in SAP Netweaver  you can see all the source code, but some functions are made only for SAP internal use or only make sense in a specific context, so they may not work as expected in your scenario.
