Macro run in background does not save results

Hi Experts,

I have scheduled the standard SNP Macro Stock Below Safety Stock (DB Alert) in background. However it returns the spool list with the message

"No data has been changed; data must not be saved"

The same macro when run through planning book works fine and generates the alerts properly.

Please Help.

Thanks in advance.

    I suppose this may because the standard macros (start, default) are not executed before the alert macro in your background job. Please notice that the standard macros are not executed automatically in the background. You'll need to schedule those macros before the alert macro.

    Best Regards,

    Are you using the same aggregation level as your planning book selection? If not, change the aggregation level and try.
