How to Execuate Dialog program in backgroud


I am doing with dialog program which going to save values in database using bapi, there is two buttons available in my program one is save and another one is background, when the user clicks save, values will be saved in online, suppose if the user clicks background, my dialog program should be run in background to store the values in database.

I appreciate if experts provide tips to overcome this issue.

    Hi ,

    user PAI will be something like

    when 'SAVE' .
             perform online 
    when 'BGRN'.
            perform background.
    form background.
    Submit Zxxx using ....
    and return . 

    say now u hit hte background button .

    function code calls BGRN option and here my idea would be to call a report by submitting the data what you have in bapi.

    use submit statement passing the content to this report so that a job is created and processed .

    here the ZXXX report will be coded as

    call function 'BAPI_********'

    Hope this helps ..

    Submit the same program in background mode and pass all the required parameters

    *part for background processing
    DATA: lv_job_name         LIKE tbtco-jobname,
    lv_job_nr           LIKE tbtco-jobcount,
    lv_job_released     TYPE c,
    lv_job_start_sofort TYPE c,
    lv_print_parameters TYPE pri_params.
    lv_job_name = 'ZPGM_NAME'. " your pgm name goes here
    * used to avoid spaces in the display
    DATA: lv_job_name_string TYPE string.
    lv_job_name_string = lv_job_name.
          jobname          = lv_job_name
          jobcount         = lv_job_nr
          cant_create_job  = 1
          invalid_job_data = 2
          jobname_missing  = 3
          OTHERS           = 4.
      IF syst-subrc = 0.
    *submit job with all the selection screen params...
        SUBMIT (lv_job_name)
            WITH applfile = applfile  " parameters start here
            WITH p_lines = p_lines
            WITH rfc_dest = rfcdest
            WITH p_selmtd = lv_selmtd
            WITH px_shsim = px_shsim
            WITH px_sherr = px_sherr " parameters end here
            USER syst-uname
           VIA JOB lv_job_name NUMBER lv_job_nr AND RETURN.
        IF sy-subrc = 0.
              jobcount             = lv_job_nr
              jobname              = lv_job_name
              strtimmed            = 'X'
              job_was_released     = lv_job_released
              cant_start_immediate = 1
              invalid_startdate    = 2
              jobname_missing      = 3
              job_close_failed     = 4
              job_nosteps          = 5
              job_notex            = 6
              lock_failed          = 7
              OTHERS               = 8.
          IF syst-subrc <> 0.
            MESSAGE i162(00) WITH
            'An error occured while closing the background job.'.
      SKIP 1.
      WRITE: / 'Background process', lv_job_name_string , 'called successfully' NO-GAP.
      WRITE: / 'You can check the job in transaction SM37'.
