Modifying Tables in Background


I am facing problem, when modifying tables when executed in Background. The custom table is not getting updated / modified.

The same program works fine, when i execute in foreground.

I have used commit work.

    Hello Madhan,

    The reasons for the problem are difficult to pinpoint with the information given.

    --> What do you mean by "not getting updated"? Is the program getting executed or not?

    --> Use some information messages / write statements (for example, to check the sy-subrc values) in your code to see where the problem is occurring.

    --> Go to transaction SM50 and see how many entries you have with the type BGD. You must have atleast one entry for this.

      Hi Madhan,

      The following code snippets will help in better diagnosis of the problem -

      1. Call to the Function Module.

      2. Call to your subroutine.

      3. All statements between 1 and 2.

      With the given information, I guess I could give you one hint: Try out giving a COMMIT WORK AND WAIT after the call to the FM and before the call to your subroutine.
