Function RP_EVALUATE_INDIRECTLY issue when upgrading from 4.6C to ECC6.0

Hi:

We have used RP_EVALUATE_INDIRECTLY_P0008 (which calls RP_EVALUATE_INDIRECTLY) for years, but are currently upgrading to ECC6.0 and have run into an issue. The function no longer retrieves reducing wage types (i.e. wage types that reduce pay) which impacts many of our processes. Has anyone else encountered this and is there a work around, other than cloning and changing all function calls to use the clone? We are a large government installation with many non-typical wage types etc. to support various contract-driven entitlements such as leave with incom averaging (LIA) where an employee can elect to go on unpaid leave for a period but have their income averaged across the entire year so their pay is reduced (hence reducing wage type) but they receive a paycheck even during their unpaid leave.

We need to find a solution to continue suporting this functionality.

Thanks

    I don't know that FM, but just check if it's "released for customer".

    If yes, you may ask support from sap.

    If no, well it will be difficult. First try to find another FM that gives you what you expect. Don't clone the FM because it's useless (what are the advantages?), enhance it with new enhancement framework (it's worth spending the little time to learn how it works, you then won't be able to work without it).

    Or ask for SAP consulting if you don't find a solution.

    There are a number of recent notes on these FMs. Have you seen them?
