  1. Go to transaction code SM36;
  2. Press ‘Job Wizard’ button in the toolbar

3. Press ‘Continue’ button in the ‘Create a job’ page

  1. Select ‘ABAP program step’ in ‘Job definition: Job step’ page, press ‘Continue’ button after you finished the input.
  2. In ‘ABAP Program Step’ page, input ‘FCLM_FLOW_BUILDER’ in ‘ABAP Program Name’ field; Input a user-defined variant or our default one ‘SAP&BG4’ in Variant. You can also setup ‘Print Parameters’ and ‘Spool list recipents’ if it is necessary. Press ‘Continue’ button after you finished the input.
  3. In ‘Multi-step option’ page, just press ‘Continue’ button.
  4. In ‘Job definition: Start conditions’ page, choose ‘After event’ and press ‘Continue’ button;
  5. In ‘Def. of start after event’ page, choose ‘SAP_FCLM_FLOW_BUILDER’ in ‘Event ID’, and select ‘Period’ checkbox. Press ‘Continue’ button;
  6. Press ‘Complete’ button to complete the wizard in ‘Set job’ page.

 

In this way you can configure the Job of transaction FF7AN, so that it is updated automatically.

 

Reminder an important point to keep in mind is that the FF7AN transaction is already obsolete and you should use the Fiori app Cash Flow Analyzer for example.
