You just need to use the Process type 'ABAP program' in your process chain. It can be found under General Services process types. Drag it in and fill in the required paramters.

Hi Ramya,

Yes, create your own variant for your abap program and include it in existing process chain.

save and activate the chain.

Not after activation...After activation schedule the process chain.

Activation Steps-->Activate the Process Chain ( also tells you if there is some error or warning)

Now Schedule the chain ( Do immediate scheduling now)

Once that is scheduled go to Log View. Once the chain successfully pass the ABAP Process you entered in the chain, check if your PSA table data got deleted .

Hi Ramya,

if you want to see the result it should run first.

after adding abap program to process chain, activate it.

now right click on process chain start --> display variant --> change selection.

check what is the start condition, if it is nto in immediate then comback

click on edit --> change selection

select immediate --> unchek the periodic values. and save. come back

again click on save. come back.

now schedule your process chain by clikc on clock symbol.

after successfull completion of your process chain you can check in SE16

Hi Ramya,

Scheduling the PC includes activation also. So you need not activate it separately. If you want to check the entries in the table, you have to run the PC once.

1. Goto Planning View of the PC > Right Click on Start Variant > Display Variant > Change Selections > Immediate > Uncheck the Periodic job > Save

2. Now click on Schedule button (F8) from the Planning View of your PC. Let the Application Server and job Priority be the default values.

3. Once your PC completes successfully check the required entries in the table.

Hope this helps.

Regards
