Custom Background Job Cancelling


Hi Folks,

I'm working on a custom development and I'm experiencing some trouble - I would greatly appreciate any help / effort from anyone in providing me with some ideas as to what the cause may be.

Basically my development is made up of two parts - Part 1) A custom RFC used to trigger a custom program in the background - here i'm using job_open / submit program / job_close. This works fine and a job is successfully created to run the custom program

Part 2) - The custom program, running in the background job tries to create a background job to trigger standard program (f.05) with a variant. Again using job_open / submit program / job_close. However on this occassion when the second background job starts it cancels immediately - stating "Make an entry in all required fields". . However the variant is fine and all the parameters for the standard program are filled. I can even trigger this program and variant seperately and it works.

Are there conflicts in creating a background job from a background job ? I'm confused as to why this is not working and i would appreciate any help or ideas anyone could give me on this.

Thanks alot for your time.




RFC -> Create Background Job # 1 -> Background Job # 1 created successfully - Custom program running in Background Job # 1 tries to run standard program in backgroun - Background Job # 2 created successfully but immediately cancels - Job log message - "Make an entry in all required fields". Job cancelled after system exception ERROR_MESSAGE.
