Creating a Batch Job for Executing Later

Former Member

Hi Experts!

I was wondering if there was a way to create a batch job, but to have it executed at a later time, since we do not have an exact date and time we need these jobs executed. My goal is to create 12 batch jobs (1 for each month), but have them excuted, when I need them too, when I choose it. Is this even possible?. I tried looking through SM36/SM37, but could not find anything on it. Please advise and thanks in advance!

Hi Will,

You can create as many as batch job via SM36. As long as you do not specify the start condition prior to save, the batch job will be on status schedule.

Then you can use SM37 to release the schedule job when you are ready to run.

Hope this will help.

Thanks Ferry. I was wondering if there was a way to set the "fiscal year variant" to that of my "accounting year". My Accounting Controller closes out the month a few days after the actual month has ended (ie Closes Period 9/2006 September on 10/5/2006). I am trying to create batch jobs for our KE30 Profitability reports, that I want to run monthly, after my accounting controller closes out that period. Is there a way to set the "fiscal year variant" to for example instead of Period 1 = 1/1/2006->1/31/2006, I would like the report to read the information for Period 1 = 1/8/2006>2/7/2006; Period 2 = 2/8/2006>3/7/2006; Period 3 = 3/8/2006-->4/7/2006 and so on?
