Step2 in a background job not running


Hello Experts

I have a background job( Z*) scheduled to run daily with 2 steps. Step 1 runs fine but step 2 does not even get triggered. The Job log has no errors as well.

Step 1 uses the standard program - RMMR1MIS - Output of this program is the creation of financial document.

Step 2 uses the standard program - MM70AMRA - Output of this program is email being sent to users( A Z script is generated and then sent out.It uses the FI Docs generated in Step1)

The interesting thing is when Step1 has no documents to be sent out, then Step2 starts and then runs fine and completes,

but when Step1 has some FI DOC numbers generated, Step 2 never even even starts.

I check ST22 for dumps but there are no dumps as well.

Why is this behavior? When i create a new job in DEV and QA with these 2 steps it works perfectly fine, but in production i face this error. Are they any entries to be checked in background job related tables?

I have attached the job log where the job stops running after STEP1.
