Background job not automatically poopulating Dependant Demand

Hi Users,

We've recently set up a POS & PA using the DP-BOM selection and characteristics, manually created PPM's and generated CVC's using the BOMS. All of this is set up fine in our SCM 7.0.

The background job has created the forecasts for the ouptput products but NOT the input product.

Now if I call up the parent material, and then choose to show the input products the dependant demand is generated. If I now return to the material with the dependant demand, it now shows the demand from the parent.

Or, if the forecast is genereated interactively, then the dependant demand is poopulated.

Is there an automated method to populate the dependant demand when using background jobs? I would like to think that we don't have to query every sales BOM parent in DP and drill into the input products to load the dependant demand?

Please let me know if there is an easier way to do this as part of the background processing.
