Unreleased function modules in SAP

This expert summary discusses using unreleased modules in SAP.

Can we use unreleased function modules in SAP? What are the advantages and disadvantages? How can we use them in the programs?
Yes you can. However, it is entirely at your own risk. The advantage is you might be able to do something pretty nifty, much more quickly than doing it yourself. The disadvantage is that if you corrupt your database by incorrectly calling the FM, SAP will charge money to help you. SAP may change or even delete the FM with no notice -- and this does happen!

I would advise all SAP customers to make sure that the use of non-release function modules is flagged up, and heavily discouraged.
