HI SAP Experts

I have a trouble with setting Standard Jobs.

Based on SNote 16083 and 1440439, I tried to define standard job in ERP environment.

However, when I tries to Predefine following jobs, I cannot define these job as standard job.




When I save in Predefine window, there is the box for variant.

However, I cannot choose any variant and save as standard jobs.

Could you please help?

Thank you so much for your help.

Best Regards,

Hi Lio

First you need to create the variant for the ABAP program / report, this is normally done by the owner of the job in t code se38.

Please refer the below link in case you need to create a dynamic variant.

I just wandering why I have to create a dynamic variant in SE38.

This is just a standard job, and i do not know what a dynamic variant I should create.

Do you have any note or link?

Hi Sriram

Thank you so much for you response.

I answer the question as below:

1. I did not get any error message. what I got was just "No Values Found" in the left bottom of my screen. And i could not pre-define the jobs.

2. As i answer above, I cannot schedule above three jobs because they are not pre-defined.

Thank you so much for your support!
