Hi All ,
Its quite surprising for me , so am sharing this, you can take care of this in future . This issue with the background job scheduling of ABAP systems .
The Phrase NO START AFTER won’t work for periodic jobs
I will explain with a simple eg:
I am Scheduling a backgound Job in my SAP Dev System
So , I have given as follows: Schedule Start 13:30:00 and No Start After 14:00:00
I made it as a periodic job as below
The program running is RSCOLL00 , just for testing
So the Job is schedules and released . As per the above logic , the job should run from 13:30:00 to 14:00:00 (Half an Hr) , so 6 times it should run . surprisingly , it is still getting released after 14:00:00, even we give ” NO START AFTER 14:00:00
At 14:00:00 ,the NO START AFTER time is getting increased automatically as below.
So take care on “NO START AFTER” in Background job scheduling for periodic jobs . I don’t understand why there is no condition checking implemented to check the end date of the job even if it is a periodic one .
