Can VA05 (underlying program SAPMV75A), be scheduled and run as a job?

When this user tried creating a job for SAPMV75A, it would not allow it, citing a problem with the program type (M). Expert Matt Billingham explains why.

I work as an ABAP developer. I've worked in this capacity for about 7 years now. Today, a question was thrown at me by an SAP end user that has stumped me! The question is: can VA05 (underlying program SAPMV75A), be scheduled and run as a job? When I tried creating a job for SAPMV75A, it would not allow it, citing a problem with the program type (M). The company I work for is in release 4.6c.
The transaction cannot be run directly as a background job - it has not been designed by SAP to work that way. However, a competent developer should be able to create a similar report to run in background, quite rapidly.
