Thank you Adam and Nicolas for your answers,

I know have a better picture how things work in Org, and I also
understand why '(org-entry-get "DEADLINE" t)' returned 'nil' when called
directly from the org-file.

I could rewrite my function using 'org-up-heading-safe' and
'org-entry-get', and it gets the expected result in the agenda view :-)

I am starting to enjoy ELisp, and I graduately become better at it.

Cheerful thanks,

Once it's perfectly aimed, the flying arrow goes straight to its target.
Thus, don't worry when things go right.
There will be enough time to worry about if they go wrong.
Then, it's time to fire a new arrow towards another direction.
Don't sink.  Adapt yourself !  The archer has to shoot accurately and quickly.
