Limitar execução em background ou foreground

images/thumbnail.jpg - Thumbnail

You’ve developed a report which you know will take over 12 hours to run. So you don’t want anyone to try to run it in foreground. I’ll show you a way to make sure it doesn’t happen.

REPORT zbackground.

* This is the magical include
INCLUDE rsdbc1xx.

* Selection screen

* Magical event
  APPEND 'ONLI' TO current_scr-excl. " Execute
  APPEND 'PRIN' TO current_scr-excl. " Execute + print
  APPEND 'SJOB' TO current_scr-excl. " Execute in background

You have 3 options: ONLI, PRIN and SJOB. Each one corresponds to one of the 3 possible execution modes available in the “Program” menu. When you add one of them to table CURRENT_SCR-EXCL that option will become disabled in the menu and removed from the toolbar.

It’s that simple.

There is another way of achieving this which is quite similar but uses FM RS_SET_SELSCREEN_STATUS instead of declaring the include and adding the values to that internal table. If the approach shown above doesn’t work please try te function.

Thank you Víctor Villamarín for the photo.
