Q: We are in the service industry and have employees working in
multiple cities on the same day. The system seems to allow one taxing authority
per day. But the taxing authority needs to be picked up from the Service Order
ideally . Can we achieve this?
A: You can create multiple infotypes 0208 (work tax area) for the same
employee and the same day. Use the 'allocation percent' field . There is no
integration however between time management and the work tax area. You may copy
infotype 0208 to IT 9208. Infotype 0208 may be used to store the default work
tax area and IT 9208 may be used to store the multiple work tax area. Create IT
9208 based on data from your external time management system.
Q: We use clocking machine for recording employee clock-in/out . All
the data is stored in a 'flat' file which is supposed to be uploaded into SAP.
When tried to open and read the flat file using OPEN DATASET and READ DATASET
commands, the Sy-subrc value returned is 8 and the error message 'the specified
file not found' is displayed. We checked the path and the file is in the correct
location. What is missing?
A: Check the path once again. Check the upper and lower cases. Define you
parameter file name like filename-fileextern. Depending on the place where the
flat file resides, the procedure varies. OPEN DATASET is used for upload of file
from the host system. If your flat (text) file is on the PC, you can use the
function WS_UPLOAD which will upload your text file into an internal table. This
internal table data can be loaded into SAP. The syntax is as follows:
CALL FUNCTION 'WS_UPLOAD'
FILENAME = pcfile
FILELENGTH = fileleng
DATA_TAB = internal table name
Please note that you have to specify the pcfile of length 128.
Q: We want to make a copy of an organizational structure from one plan
variant to another. This copy should include all assignments like purchasing
groups to organizational units made in PFOM . Can we do this?
A: Make sure that the plan number is established through the IMG. (And
that it is not the active plan.)
Go Human Resources -> Organizational Management Tools -> Plan version
It runs RHCOPL00. All or any portion of the plan maybe copied and manipulated
and then copied back in to the active plan.
Q: We have a reQuirement to calculate leave entitlement at the
anniversary year not calendar year. The leaves have both paid and unpaid
components. The paid component is based on time worked. The unpaid component is
based on years of service. Leave taken is reduced from both entitlements
depending on employee's reQuest. We are using a Schema based on TM04 which calls
Cycles TS15, TS10. What is th ebest way to handle this?
A: You can use field 'DAUER' for seniority based vacation entitlement in
the VAC01->VAC99 features. Time worked is not part of the feature structure
(PME03). However you may create your own source code to make a decision on any
field even if it does not belong to the feature structure. Check feature VAC01.
Q: We have multiple ORGs as we have many subsidiaries of our Parent
company. These subsidiaries are defined as ORG and are assigned an ORG-ID.
Within each ORG, we have Divisions (e.g. Human Resources, Finance, Materials
etc.) and within each division we have Departments (e.g. Payroll, Labor
Relations, etc.). We plan to use Personnel Development( PD). What is that we
have to consider in this case?
A: You have to consider how the company
wants to see its reports while designing the HR organizational structure in PD.
You have address the Questions: for headcount or regulatory reports to which
level does the company need to report, to the division, department, group or
team level. You have to design the SAP organizational structure to support the
lowest level reQuired. Lower the more levels of detail, the more maintenance
Q: How can we configure the options for the Assgn Form. No. field on
Infotype 210. It is the alternate formula to assign tax field and we have been
unable to locate the table in the IMG to edit the options.
A: Options for the BSI Tax Formula can not be configured.
Possible entries are available in BTXFORM, and they depend on the 'tax
authority' ( BTXAUTH) and the 'tax type' (BTXTAXT). Use data dictionary to check
existing entries. This data comes from BSI. Tax calculations are done in the
BSI programs (via RFC from the USTAX function in the payroll schema).
Q: We are using the US HR/PAYROLL module. We are able to create the
entry to credit the accrued payroll account. But our check writing process does
not produce any accounting entries when we create a pay check or run our EFT
process(RFFOUS_T). Should RFFOUS_C produce an accounting entry to debit the
payroll payable account and credit the cash account ?
A: RFFOCUS_C does not produce any accounting entries. During the FI/CO
interface run , 559 wage types may be posted to your cash account
Q: We have approximately 10000 zip codes. We want to relate the
eligibility group to the zip code. We do not want to create 20000 eligibility
groups. Which is the best way to configure basing eligibility for HMO's on zip
A: Try to group the zip codes by the HMO's they belong to. Then create
benefit groups and programs for the uniQue combinations. You can create as many
benefit groups as reQuired and use the employee zipcode to select the benefit
group the employee is eligible for. You may also look at user exit 2.
Q: We are using the PAI user exit in MP000800 screen 2000 to modify
the BET01 field. After modifying the value, the value is not re displayed.
However the updated value is saved on commit. Why the value is not displayed
