Execution of ABAP programs with predetermined settings in the background, that is, with no on-screen user dialog. In contrast to
dialog processing, the execution flow is fixed when the program is started. An
executable program is scheduled in the
ABAP Editor or after calling
System → Services → Reporting using menu Program
→ Execute → Background for automatic execution or is called in the background using
SUBMIT VIA JOB. For background processing, at least one background
work process must be set up.
