Checking the Status of a Background Job

Procedure

  1. Check the status of your background jobs by choosing System ® Own jobs from anywhere in the system.

    At the top of the screen, the system displays the status of each of your jobs. The F1 field help explains each status.

    In the middle of the screen, the system displays the names of your jobs that are active (that is, currently running). Unless you are sure of what you are doing, you should leave the Cancel button alone. Cancel interrupts an active job; that is, it terminates the report that was running.

    At the bottom of the screen, the system displays the names of any of your jobs that have been cancelled (that is, ended unsuccessfully). To see the background processing log, choose Log. The log indicates what went wrong with the job.

  2. For more information on your jobs, you can access the management functions of the background processing system by choosing Job overview.
