In the old days, working with infopackages, it was easy to schedule loads from within the infopackage. Schedule the infopackage directly, or in the background on a specific date + time.
Unfortunately this easy scheduling is not available from within the DTP. To schedule an individual DTP, you HAVE to create a process chain, containing the DTP you want to schedule.

Luckily there’s a workaround for this. Applying the code below will create an ABAP which makes it possible to schedule (individual) DTP’s, without the necessity of a process chain.

Enter the technical DTP name in the parameter field of the ABAP and schedule the ABAP. Via scheduling the ABAP automatically the DTP will be scheduled 😉
