& Variant of a background processing does not take dynamic dates parameters

Hi to all,

when scheduling a standard transaction with option "execute in background" (F9), SAP assigned an internal variant (starting with &) that we expected, was a copy of the parameters/variant used when programming the run.

But the &variant assigned does not consider the dynamic parameters that were set in the original variant (e.g. posting date was set as "from month start to today"). Thus, when seeting the job to be run periodically (on a daily basis), dates are not adjusted accordingly and so, the output obtained is not correct.

We tried updating the variant in the job created (sm37/ change / steps) but the system does not allow us to save the changes performed (save buttom is not enable).

We know we can schedule a job with SM36, but we first would like to see which the best way is to update the variant when the user select F9 option form any standard transaction.

Many thanks!
