    Hi,

    There is no difference between the spools that you see from SM37 and SP01. The reason that you dont see the spools is that the step does not contain an output device. You could specify LOCL or an output device that is configured in SPAD in the job step (under 'print specifications')

    regards,

      Hi,

      My apologies. I just checked by running a program in the background without specifying an output device and I was able to see the spool. So, the output device does not matter. The program should be coded to output to the spool (the ABAP 'WRITE' statement or call the ALV )

      regards,

    All scheduled jobs will not have the spool output,it depends on the programme you have scheduled

    If spool is there it will show in the columne spool list

    From sm37 you can see spool of the corresponding job,in sp01 all spool request of all users can be viewed.It contains spool created by B/G Job and spool generated for printouts

    What Tcode you used for printing(eg f-58)?

    1) In SP01 put * on OUTDEVICE field and execute

    2) In SPAD select printer --> Enter --> (CTRL+ F7)

    Hello Tee,

    The reason why some spool is not displayed in sm37 is that they might have been deleted by standard sap job SAP_REORG_SPOOL using report RSPO0041 - Delete Old Spool Requests.

    This report is scheduled to clear old spools after some days to prevent spool overflow issue in table TSP01


    Please check

    Note 706478 - Preventing Basis Tables From Increasing Considerably

    The screenshot you have given shows job start date as 2001. I do not think you will have spools from 2001 present in system now.

    Thanks,
    Ranjith

    I found these SAP Notes regarding this. Can some one tell me what exactly happening with this spool?

    sapnote_0001174127 and sapnote_0000422136

    • Hello Tee,

      These notes are for cases with wrong spool being generated, Your issue is that spools are not being displayed. Are you able to find spool overflow dump ? are you able to view spools from jobs that ran today or yesterday?

      Thanks,

      Ranjith
