You can see Output in the SP01 transaction in as a spool request output. From there you can print.

If Any printer setting you want you can use SPAD with the help of BASIS admin.

Goto Tcode SM37 To see the Status of Job and Check the Spool No Generated.

To Print The Output.

Hi Manas,

Every background job will generate a spool request so you can see the ouput in the spool.

Transaction : SP01

Award points if this is helpful.

Hi Manas,

Execute your report by pressing F9.. The system will pop up the back ground scedule screen... click immediate and save.. also the printer settings will be needed to put at the same time...

Then goto SM37 transaction and see the created job.. when the job status turns green, then select it and click on the log... on the next screen you will get an option of spool.. double click and you can see the report o/p..

Thanks and Best Regards,

Vikas Bittera.
