Parallel processing in background using Job scheduling...


(Note: Please understand my question completely before redirecting me to parallel processing links in sdn. I hve gone through most of them.)

Hi ABAP Gurus,

I have read a bit till now about parallel processing. But I have a doubt.

I am working on data transfer of around 5 million accounting records from lagacy to R/3 using Batch input recording.

Now if these all records reside in one flat file and if I then process that flat file in my batch input program, I guess it will take days to do it. So my boss suggested

to use parallel processing in SAP.

Now, from the SDN threads, it seems that we have to create a Remote enabled function module for it and stuf....

But I have a different idea. I thought to dividE these 5 million records in 10 flat files instead of just one and then to run the Custom BDC program with 10 instances which will process 10 flat files in background using Job scheduling.

Can this be also called parallel processing ?

Please let me know if this sounds wise to you guys...
