    Hi,

    Go to tcode SM37. Select the job which you want to cancel.Go to Job->Cancel Active Job.

    It will cancel your job which you have scheduled.

    Thanks,

    There is a last ditch method for jobs that don't get canceled for some reason or the other

    Go to SM50 - first try canceling the job from there

    If that doesn't work, note down the Process ID (PID) of the job

    Take direct OS access to your system (You would need your Basis person for this) and terminate the job

    If the server is Windows based, you can end it using the task manager and end that process id

    Fastest way to kill a process:

    • Transaction: SM66
    • Click on the process you want to kill
    • From your keybord: Alt + E -> P -> I -> O

    You don't need to have a direct access to OS.

    Bye,

    Hello,

    Repeatedly cancel the Jon in SM37. Look at the menu Job---> Cancel Active JOb

    IF it doesn't get cancelled then try with the Tcode SM50

    Cheers,
