Hi ,

I did a Process chain, could somebody please tell , am i doing it right.

1) T-code RSPC created a Process Chain named : likp_lips_pc.

2) Created a Process Variant named : likp_lips_pv, it took me to a page where i selected Direct Scheduling and gave the start time as 9:00 pm (yesterday).

3) Selected process type ,chose Info package for LIKP,LIPS.

4) In the right side panel, gave the connections. Start Process is Connected to 2 InfoProvider LIKP,LIPS. From LIPS a connection AND and used MARA(IP). From LIKP and MARA i used Attribute Change Run.

I used 3 Info providers (LIKP,LIPS,MARA) where matnr is avaliable both in LIPS & MARA i used AND in process chain(Please correct if i am wrong) .

What is Attribute Change Run?, is that a must i should use in all the process chain. When should i use Attribute Change Run?.

5. I have activated and Scheduled.

6) What should i do by 9.00pm when the schedule is taking place should i click something to make the schedule or begin login is enough.

what will happen during 9.00 pm, is there anyway i could see physically what is happening Will there be any load somewhere so that i can see the Result whether it is successfull.

I am totally confused. I have no idea. Please help with this. It will be much helpful for me to learn.

    Hi,

    You need to include an attr change run if you are loading master data and need the values to be activated. This is similar to running the program from RSATTR.

    If you have set it to run at 9:00 pm and then activated and scheduled the chain then it will run at 9:00 pm system time. If you set a frequency, then it will run as per the period indicated.

    You can check the logs and status of the process chain from the same place. Just need to select the chain and click the logs button. Here can you see a step by step progresion of the processes (Grenn: Completed successfully, Yellow: In progress, Red: Failed) You can also right click on the process to see further options, like looking in the cube etc.

    Hope this helps...

    Let me get this straight, your PC looks like this:

             Start
          _____|_____
          V          V
      IP-LIPS     IP-LIKP
         |___________|
               |
               V
              AND
               |
               V
           IP-MARA
               |
               V
      Attr Chg Run (0MATERIAL)

    First, it is recommended that you load master data (MARA) first before transaction data (LIKP, LIPS). This will make loading the transaction data a little faster.

    The Attribute Change Run should run at the end of loading all master data. It activates your master data changes. You may want to consider creating a separate process chain for loading your master data.

    As far as 9:00pm goes, you do not need to be "logged on". Your process chain will execute automatically. To view your process chain, you can go to RSPC, view your process chain, and click on the icon at the top called Logs (looks like a scroll). Here you can graphically view your process chain. Processes that are green have completed normally. Yellow means that the process is executing, and Red means there is an error. You can right-click on the process to display the messages.

    Hope this helps.

      No, it has already executed. You can click on the monitor button at the top. If you double click on the process in the <b>Logs</b> view, it will show you the messages, or right-click on the process and select Display messages...
