UD with Multiple Specifications (and in background) with QA11?

I'm stuck with a small problem and haven't found a good alternative yet.

I need to add an UD (User Decision) when Multiple Specifications are active.

This can be achieved with transaction QA11. We've created a BDC do this.

Problem occurs when we schedule this solution as a background job. It seems that QA11 contains a custom container which raises an error when performed in background. The dump it creates says 'CL_GUI_CUSTOM_CONTAINER..... CNTL_ERROR'

I've tried bapi 'BAPI_INSPLOT_SETUSERDECISION', but this won't work for Multiple Specifications.

Can anyhelp provide some help? Perhaps suggesting an alternative way of performing the activities in QA11 or maybe other transactions which do the same as QA11 and can be scheduled as BG job?

Many thanks.

Best regards,

Did you try QA16 for this? With QA16/QA17 you can schedule background job for  UDs that gets executed in mass.

Thank you for the suggestion.

But I can't use the 'normal' UD scheduling due to the use of Multiple Specifications. So the usage of QA16/QA17, QA10 etc. is not possible.

The only possible solution that I have so far, is using QA11. I've made a BDC of QA11 and when run in foreground, everything works fine. When run in background, I get an exception in CL_GUI_CUSTOM_CONTAINER and the program dumps.
