SE38 -> select the program.

Go to menu -> Program Execute in background.

Just keep pressing enter and whereever you see SAVE button, press save.

Thats it, job is scheduled.

Goto SM37 to chk the result of the job.

Background jobs can be schedules by using t-code: sm36,

If you want to upload the data from Excel file on presentation server(your system) then it won't work in background.

All the function modules available to upload data from excel requires GUI interaction which is not available in background.

So for background processing, it is required to have file on application server and not on presentation server.

SCHEDULING JOB

Sm36 & Sm37 are used to schedule the job.

Or press execute button in SE38 and on selection screen - >goto program - >execute in background.

reward if useful.
