Is there any reason why not to use the FM API_SEMBPS_VARIABLE_GETDETAIL instead of implementing the FM Z_VARIABLE_GET_DETAIL as described in the "How to" paper?

Thanks for any answers.

    Hello Martin,

    here are two reasons:

    - The API returns values in external format and you would need to convert back to internal format

    - The API does not buffer values.

    Overall the Z* function will provide better performance (implement the latest version of the how-to).
