    By asking What is Batchjob ?

    if your meaning is Background Job than........

    In sap Background job is used for the executing programmes by system at odd times when sys is not on load.

    In PS context, for ex. say for your customer project you want system to run the result analysis KKA2 weekly so, that every week your user need not to run result analysis. for this type of requirement you can use Background job.

    Now how it will work.

    taking result anlaysis ex. one of the program that runs the result anlysis is SAPKKa17. you can find the prog name from txn status tab as well. Once you got the prog. name than

    in SM36 we create job for running that program of SE38. ( programe can be SAP standard or our custom program )

    In SM37 we schedule that job at which interval it should run , what type of out put file we should get etc. i.e. we define variants for that Batch job.

    So, general Background job is used to run SAP standard / custom program with user define variants. so we can avoid load on system on normal hours & automate work for user.

    For the month end FI /Co postings background jobs are used extensively.

    Hi

    Batch jobs normally come into picture in a manufacturing industry or in a process industry. Here the product and the quantity are defined for the particular requirement. The manufacturing process, material and the equipment used is same in the above scenario. It is like repetitive manufacturing. There could be a change in the quantities based on the requirement.

    Hope this clarifies.

    When u would like to run perticular task periodically in background then u use batch jobs. for example any periodic process.

    You can define a new job in SM36 and review them SM37.
