Automatic run for PRAA change


I want to change the employee vendor name automatically through PRAA.

I have scheduled a background job for PRAA and it is just creating a session in SM35.

Could you please let me know whether I need to create a seperate job (which is given in PRAA, name of job) for running this session, or do I need to do manually?

I am able to see the name of job which is executed in SM37, but the session is not run, vendor name is not changed.

    There are several ways to run this job , either as as follows: first RPRAPA00 creates only the workfile.( could be as a background job) When this is finished, RFBIKR00 (also as background job) takes this file and creates the batch input session out of it and if this is finished, the last report comes to process the created session. The essential thing here is that the same user starts both jobs as otherwise there can be problems with RFBIKR00 detecting the workfile from PRAA.

    The other way is through 1) RPRAPA00 without job name defined and 2) RSBDCSUB

    Hope it helps

      Hello Sally,

      I am following the same process as you have mentioned.

      When i explicitly update a vendor through PRAA it is updated successfully. Changes are reflected in XK02 / XK03. But when done via a batch job changes are not reflected. 😔

      Do you have any idea as to what can be the possible cause for not updating the vendors despite everything executing successfully? Please your inputs on this.

      Thanks in advance.
