emailing abap report output list from process chain

I would like to run an abap report from within a process chain and email the output spool list. I know how to add an abap program process to the process chain, but unlike background jobs, it seems that I cannot assign a "Spool List Recipient" to the output.

    Paul,

    Instead of doing that - why dont you write to a file and then mail out the file ..?

    why don't you take care of the emailing in the ABAP program itself (instead of sending the output to the spool)?

    Thanks for the replies, but I am looking for a simple way of doing something that is simple in background jobs. I can code anything in the report program, but that has to be replicated in each program. I will probably have to run my program in a background job, using the spool list recipient functionality, then raise an event to run my process chain.

    This is really something that should be possible directly in a process chain. perhaps in a future release.

      that's quite different from your initial question

      what are you exactly trying to do? there might be an easy way to accomplish it... but process chains don't look at spool list (and probably never will) as it has nothing to see with spool requests
