Product Version: Dollar.Universe 5.6.0 FX25010

Description :With the new RFCSDK (which seems to be installed with SAP System v7.2) the Manager can't use the script 'startrfc_download_zuxts' because the SAP 'startrfc'
command calls in our script has changed.

The new 'startrfc' command options are :

Usage: startrfc [options]

Options:
-h SAP application server to connect to
-s system number of the target SAP system
-u user
-p password
-c client
-l logon language
-D destination defined in RFC config file sapnwrfc.ini
-F function module to be called, only EDI_DATA_INCOMING or EDI_STATUS_INCOMING is supported
-E PATHNAME= path, including file name, to EDI data file or status file, with maximum length of 100 charachters
-E PORT= port name of the ALE/EDI interface with maximum length of 10 charachters
-t enable RFC trace
-help or -? display this help page

Root Cause: The problem comes with the '-F' option. In our 'startrfc_download_zuxts' script, we're using the '-F' flag with our function ' Z_UX_F_ZUXTS_DOWNLOAD', but with the new 'startrfc' command, only EDI_DATA_INCOMING or EDI_STATUS_INCOMING function is supported.
