    Hi ,

    I am a bit not sure if the file is on the desktop or presentation server..

    But if you put the file on the application server(using AL11) since this is the SAP Application server, although u schedule the background job, the file will be picked from the application server path..

    Regards

    Shiva

    • You can run your program in background.

    • what you can do is execute the program

    • At selection screen provide inputs (file path)and then

    • go to program menu and click on execute in background.

    Its is not possible to schedule a report to run on a specific time even when computer is off.

    If there is some process chain which gets executed daily then you can also include this report along

    with variants.

    Hope this helps.

    Give the file path of the file on your desktop and run the program in background mode.

      What would you have the moderators do? Assigning poin ts is not compulsory. Once the OP has 10 (I think) open posts after a certain date (don't remember what it is), he or she will not be able to post.
