The basic difference between the options is as below.

Cancel with Core

Cancels the work process, A core file is created, which you can view in transaction ST11.

Cancel with core = LOG FILES are created and the job is killed.

Cancel without Core

Cancels a work process and a core file is not created.

Cancel without core =NO LOG FILES are created and the job is killed.

Step:8
Then that row get eliminated from that screen and when you check it again in SM37 ,the job get Cancelled./wp-content/uploads/2013/06/6_1_236508.png

    hi Mohit,

    Congragulations for you effort to come up with a document. A lot of people might already be aware of these steps. My two cents. You can improve the document by mentioning what difference it is to cancel with/without core, and why we are not able to cancel it in SM37.
