We've got several reports ( ALV ).
Got functions to export an ALV to a binary MSExcel format.
Got function to mail the excel file to recipient.
All of this is working from frontend.
Wanted to make a job so that 'registered' users automatically receive their report by mail in excel format.
Here is the problem, files aren't created , mail aren't sent.
TO create my excel binary I use an extension of TRUX function group ( SAP_CONVERT_TO_EXCEL )
DO I need to install MSOffice on the main sap server ?
To send mails I use CL_BCS, is there any incompatibility with a background job ?
