Job Scheduling


I am trying to schedule a job that runs every night at 2.00am, but for a certain period every month - say from 4th April to 25th April, excluding weekends.

I have been told that I need to write an ABAp program for this, as the end date for a job cannot be defined in job scheduling.

The requirement is to run the job for a fixed number of days every month.

How do I achieve this?

Thanks for your help!

SAP's own periodic job scheduling capabilities are limited.

Some potential workarounds for your scenario, more or less nasty, expensive or complex:

- create specific holiday and factory calendars and use these in your jobs for skipping to next "workday"

- schedule multiple monthly jobs on the desired days

- write bespoke scheduling program (as suggested above and below)

- deploy more sophisticated, 3rd party job scheduling tools
