Hi Shayan,

These are the steps:

1.- Go to SM36 transaction.

2.- Put the job name.

3.- Select the "Start condition" button. The system will open a new screen.

4.- Select the option needed (Immediate, date/time, etc.). If you select "Immediate", click on save button.

If you select "Date/time", define the date and the time that you want to run your job. Then, click on the "Period values" button and select the option needed (i.e. hourly, daily, etc.) and save.

5.- Save the "Start time".

6.- Click on the "Step" button. The system will open a new screen.

7.- In the "Name" field, put the program of the VT01N transaction: SAPMV56A

8.- In the "Variant" name, put your variant name that you created before.

9.- Save the "Steps".

10.- Once you go back to the initial screen, save the job.

11.- Check your job scheduled in SM37 transaction.

Hope this help.

Kind regards.
