Mass update order in background


We have a group of very large sales orders which need to be rejected. When we attempt to do so on the front-end, they are timing out. The same occurs when we attempt to process the rejections through the MASS transaction. As such, we'd like to perform the mass update in the background. After doing some research, I have found transaction MSJ1 which allows MASS to be run in the background against a variant. This is where I am struggling.

To create the variant, I am going to the MASS transaction, choosing the field to be updated (Reason for Rejection), specifying my selection criteria, and specifying the new values. I then choose GoTo >> Save as Variant, specify my variant name and description, and keep the standard options checked. When I then reload this variant, everything is saved properly, except the new value which I've specified is not copied down to all the items. When I try to run MSJ1 against this variant, no data is changed.

How do I save the variant so that the new value is copied down to all the items and it can be processed in the background?

Your help is much appreciated,
