Background Scheduling

Dear Experts

I need to schedule a job where an executable report needs to run thrice with different variants and frequency should be on daily basis. Pls guide me through this. I am not aware how to add multiple steps in a job. e.g. first step of the job should be the report with 1st variant,second step is the same report with 2nd variant and third step with 3 variant.

    1. create the three variants for the program

    2. Go to SM36 transaction enter the job name.

    3. click on step button and enter the ABAP program Name and variant 1.

    4. click on the save button.you will see the step one in screen

    5. click on the create button on the same screen and enter second variant and program name.

    6. click on save and again create the third variant same as step 5.

    Hello,

    While defining the background job in SM36, just click on STEP button and specify the second variant and save. Same way you can add multiple steps with different variants
