Scheduling one background job inside another

Former Member

Hi All,

Is it possible to Scheduling one background job inside another.? i.e In my Z program I am calling job_open, job_submit, job_close and to execute one standard report in background. And after that I am executing my Z program itself from SE38 as Program->Execute->Background->Execute Immediately. Is this logically correct? I am asking this because I am not getting the desired result

Thanks & Regards,

Check the job steps in SM36.

First schedule the Standard job and in the job steps schedule the z report.
