1. Introduction: Very often we come across the error in any intermediate step of a process chain. Many times we just want to skip that error process so that process chain can proceed further. In BI 7.3 SAP has given the option of SKIP for any error process. By selecting this process chain proceeds further ignoring the error process. However in BI 7.0 and its lower version SKIP option is not available.
