Scheduling custom BDC report as a job....

Hi,

I want to generate a background Job for a custom BDC ABAP report.

I am going to transaction SM36, entering name of Job -> Job class as 'C' -> enter.

But after I provide name of the program, it also has a field called variant. What do I enter there ?

Is it that I need to create some varaiant for my BDC report ? How do I do that ?

Also how do I schedule this job which I created ?

Regards.

    Variant is not mandatory field. For example if ur BDC report is having some selection screen and if u want to get some data from it, save that data as a variant in the program and use that in SM36.

    Hi Rajesh,

    Create a Varinat for your BDC program, if you have a selection-screen and provide that varinat here. else, you can go ahead for background.

    <u><i>Also how do I schedule this job which I created ?</i></u>

    Once you enter the program name,variant click on SAVE button in the same screen.

    Then come click on <b>Start Condition</b>, click on DATE/TIME button>enter the scheduling date/time>click on Periodic values and select monthly/daily ect.-->save.

    Pls mark the helpful answers.

    Thanks

    To see status of Job in SM37 when I click on execute after inputting Job name, Job status(all selected), and user name, it says nothing found, but I am sure I processed the job in SM36 with immediate condition....

    Hi Rajesh,

    I assume that you have a variant for your program.

    Follow these steps.

    1) Goto SM36

    2)Enter Job Name and Job Class. Then Save it. (Goto Job-->Save(Ctrl + S) in Menu bar).

    3) You will get a popup.

    In program values enter ABAP program and Variant name.

    Save it.

    4) Now goto SM37.

    Job status all selected.

    Execute.

    5)You will find your Job created. <b>Check it</b>.

    6)Press CtrlShiftF10 (Release Job)

    Immediate. Save again.

    Done..

    Regards,

    <b>AS</b>.
