Running BDC in Background

Former Member

Hi all,

I'm working on ECC 6.

Whenever I'm scheduling a BDC in background, it is not running, whereas the same is working perfectly in foreground.

What can be the reason?

Can anybody guide me?

Check in foreground to see if you are getting an error like field not found in dynpro or something.

Check in foreground with CTU_PARAMS-DISMODE = 'E' or CTU_PARAMS-DISMODE = 'A' to see if you are getting some error like field not found in dynpro.

there can be various reasons.

Please check whether you are using the file on presentation server or application server. In background processing the function modules GUI_UPLOAD etc will not work. You need to put the file on application server.

Check whether you are giving file with data or empty file.

Create a variant in the program and While creating background job mention the variant name there.

Is it showing any errors ? if so please mention them .

Thanks and regards.
