Selection variables (table TVARV)

When scheduling background jobs I was recommended to use selection variables for the fields reffering to different dates. However, some of the fields in reports I want to schedule does not have the DATE format (instead they have e.g. period and year) and I am restricted to selection variables in table TVARV. So my question:

Is there any way to have the values of the variant variables in table TVARV change automatically (e.g. have one field that holds the current month).

Many thanks in advance

    The easiest way to achieve this is to write a program which you either schedule as the first step of any job which should be using your selection variables or schedule on another basis (but regularly) which directly updates TVARV.

    I have worked on a couple of sites where this approach has been used, and it is a very simple matter to write the appropriate code and test it.
