submit exporting list to memory and return; background execution


Hello everybody,

i have a report A, that calls a report B using "SUBMIT B EXPORTING LIST TO MEMORY AND RETURN". Then in report A the result of report B is read from ABAP Memory using FM "LIST_FROM_MEMORY". Works.

But when i call Report A in background, the result of report B is written to SPOOL instead of ABAP memory. Seems there is no ABAP memory for the background execution ?

What can i do, do i have to use "SUBMIT B TO SAP-SPOOL AND RETURN" and then read the list from SPOOL ? Will this work in fore- and background execution ? Or is there another (more simple) way ?

Thank you,
