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.
An SAP user is trying to run a report in an SAP ALV Grid online and wants to know how to get the data in the report to appear along with the header.
An SAP user needs to transfer customer purchase order spreadsheet data to SAP VA01 to create a new sales order.
An SAP user needs information on how to change the password on several SAP user accounts from a central location.
