Calling Executable Programs

Executable programs are only directly executable from the end user's perspective. Whenever an executable program is started using System → Services → Reporting or a report transaction, the statement SUBMIT is executed internally. Executable programs are the only programs that can be called using SUBMIT.

Other versions: 7.31 | 7.40 | 7.54


When the SUBMIT statement is executed, it is followed by an authorization check (using the authorization object S_PROGRAM) for the authorization group specified in the program attributes.
