    Hi John,

    If the job is active, it doesnt allow to kill it.

    to do that first goto tcode SM50 and select your job

    from the list and goto menu

    Process -> Cancel with core .

    after that goto SM37 and now delete the job.

    Hope this will help you.

    Thanks&Regards,

    Siri.

    hello,

    GO to SM37, Here you can delete you job, if it is not active.

    SM37 > Run ...

    Select Job and go to Job > Delete

    Hi,

    you can kill the process using SM50,

    in SM50 choose your Job(Progam which is running in BGD) and go to menu <b>Program/Mode</b> -> <b>Program</b> -> <b>Cancel</b>

    now popup will come say Yes.

    thats it.

      In SM37, check the checkbox next to the job in question, in the menu, click job, check status. This will sync it up. Now you should be able to delete.

    • Go to SM37. Enter your Job Name and user *. Select the checkbox for 'Scheduled'. Enter the date range as from date to be today and the to date to be well into the future(may be just change the year to 2007). Now you should see one job that is scheduled to run next time. Simply delete that job and you will be good to go.

      When periodic job is setup, it goes into scheduled status. It will remain in scheduled status until the conditions for its start are met. Then it goes into READY and ACTIVE and FINISHED(or CANCELLED). When this instance goes into an active status, another one will come up with 'scehduled' status.
