    This option is for active (running) background job, for scheduled, finished or canceled, use either "Job/Delete" to delete the job (irreversible) or "Job/released -> scheduled" to un-schedule job. You could (should) have found this with the online help (or Managing Jobs from the Job Overview)

    Regards,

    Raymond

    Have you tried deleting the scheduled job?

    There is a delete button in application toolbar.

    Hi Satish,

    See this link

    IF it doesn't get cancelled then try with the Tcode SM50


    GO to SM50 --> Menu Choose Process --> Cancel with Core.

    Hi Satish,

    Go to sm37 job monitoring screen and double click on the job which you want to cancel.

    In the menu click on Job Details tab.

    New window will pop up. Collect WP number/PID from this screen.

    Go to SM50 T-code. start Searching with WP number/PID. you will find one work processor for the same. Select that particular work process go to Process on top and select Cancel with core.

    The job will be cancelled.

    Lets say WP number/PID is 41/10354,758

    search for WP 41 and check corresponding PID will be 10354758.

    But be careful while selecting and cancelling the job.

    Thanks

    Hi Satish,

    Cancel is to Terminate Jobs that are running that is in Active stage.

    You have scheduled the job so you can post pone it by changing or delete it but not cancel it.

    I hope it helps.

    Regards
