How to execute a report program in background based on input parameter?

Hi

I have report program with some input parameters.

SELECTION-SCREEN BEGIN OF BLOCK b1 WITH FRAME.

PARAMETERS : p_rad1 RADIOBUTTON GROUP rb1 USER-COMMAND rad DEFAULT 'X'.

PARAMETERS : p_rad2 RADIOBUTTON GROUP rb1.  "selected for background processing

PARAMETERS: p_file TYPE string.

PARAMETERS: p_field1 TYPE c LENGTH 1 DEFAULT 'A'.

PARAMETERS: category(10) AS LISTBOX VISIBLE LENGTH 30 DEFAULT '50000067'.

PARAMETERS: p_field2 TYPE c LENGTH 1 DEFAULT 'D'.

PARAMETERS: p_date  TYPE sy-datum DEFAULT sy-datum.

PARAMETERS: p_chbx AS CHECKBOX USER-COMMAND flag DEFAULT ' '.

SELECTION-SCREEN END OF BLOCK b1.

<<< my logic to read the data and process it >>>

I have a "p_file" to upload data in flat file format before execution. And on selection of the radio button p_rad2 I need to execute this program in background and otherwise it is to be executed manually.

I tried using JOB_OPEN, JOB_SUBMIT, JOB_CLOSE but got stuck somewhere. Please can anybody guide me in detail on how to do this by any method?

Thanks

Hi Archer

I was doubtful about it but after your suggestion I used this method.

1st program

CALL FUNCTION 'JOB_OPEN'


EXPORT lt_data TO MEMORY ID 'ABCD'.


SUBMIT "program2_name" VIA JOB lv_jobname NUMBER lv_jobcount TO SAP-SPOOL WITHOUT SPOOL DYNPRO AND RETURN.

CALL FUNCTION 'JOB_CLOSE'


2nd Program


IMPORT lt_data FROM MEMORY ID 'ABCD'.


here I used my data from program 1 to be executed in background
