background processing

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 ABAP Editor or after choosing System → Services → Reporting from the menu Program → Execute → Background for automatic execution or is called in the background using SUBMIT VIA JOB. Background processing takes place in a separate background session and at least one background work process must be configured.
