BOM explosion directly from STPO


Dear SAP experts

We have a problem at our company, which holds us back for some time. The thing is, that we develop an external tool that pulls valid BOMs from SAP. To do that within SAP I can use CS12 transaction, put material, plant, bom application and what's most important, valid from date. The transaction returns the valid material components. I know the data come from STPO table, however I can't figure the logic of returning the components as CS12 does it. I know there's the CS_BOM_EXPL_MAT_V2 function involved, but since it is not RFC enabled we can't use it in our tool. So, how does the function returns bom components for a specific material and valid from date from STPO?

best regards,
