Difference between Batch jobs and background jobs...

hi APO Gurus ....

This may sound a very silly question. What is the exact difference between a batch run and executing a background job ?

    If i understand correctly your question is executing a program (for example) in background and running in a batch jobs. You can execute a program in background while you are online, go to menu program->execute in background and enter print parameter, schedule parameter. System creates and starts job dynamically. You can check in SM37. Batchjob is you create job using SM36 (with program and Variant) define run frequency. System automatically run job in specified frequency. I my experience, technically both are same, system behaves exactly same. One dynamically creates job other one runs on predefined freq.

    Thanks,
