Hi, group.

I have a custom-written ABAP that is performing a function where the
program should not be allowed to run parallel to itself. In other words, I
start the job ABC and it starts running in a BTC process. Another user
starts the same job and it should WAIT for the first job to finish before
continuing. I don't want to STOP the second job, but it must simply WAIT
until the first job is complete.

I have written the program to check the contents of table TBTCO as the
first step. If I find the jobname in an active state then I wait 30
and check again. I do this repeatedly until I don't find the job with an
active status, at which point I exit the loop and continue with the
processing. This method seems to cause problems, though. I find 4 or 5
waiting, but they seem to be holding up the first job that was started, so
we end up in a dead-end situation. I have to end all the subsequent jobs
allow the first one to complete and then manually start the secondary jobs

Can someone please suggest a way of getting around this?

Thanks and regards,

You need an installation version (upgradeversion will also not work)- you
must order it at SAP if you do not have it.

You say you are at the COM version so you should order the install of SR1 -
but ordinary 3.1I will also work (you should use the method of homogenneous
system copy. Follow note 36862 - first you create the new system with the
install, then after point 3 go to point 15 and after that return to step 4.=

After completing make a copy of an updated kernel and apply it to the new

Just done this tree times works every time
