i have a doubt here and i hope it would be cleared in this forum.
how does values comes in Input, Processing and output in payroll log.... for ex: sap provides detailed explanation in processing step.... where does this stored.... how it is appearing in payroll log.... plz. help to understand this.... Thank you all for your continuous contribution to this forum
Execute Payroll Calculation (or Payroll Simulation) for one employee, for the current pay, with the "Protocol" or "Log" turned on.
Once it's over, you can drill down into the log, starting with the employee, the payroll period, the main schema, the subschemas and all it's functions and PCRs.
For example, in the beginning of our subschema ZAP0, function P0014 calls personnel calculation rule Z011, and if I look into the log, I will see what was read from IT0014 and how that information was processed (and either transfered into the output table OT or the results table RT).
thank you all for your responses.. but my question is how the detailed description/steps appearing in the processing step?? for ex for standard functions when we click on processing we get detailed explanation of the functionality that is available for that function.... my question from where this detailed explanation is coming..... where the text is maintained??
I think you are talking about the log that is getting after executing the Payroll.
If so, as an example, kindly goto Factoring and storage and double click on X023 (Gross input and storage).
Here, you can see the Input Table, Processing and Output Table.
If I am not wrong you are talking about the Processing that is displayed here.
If yes, Open the Schema through TCode PE01 and double click the Subschema for Period factoring and storage (INAL is the standard one. But if some 'Z' has been used instead of INAL double click that one). Here you can see X023 (Gross input and storage). Double click X023 and you can see Rule according to which the Processing is happening.
Thanks and Regards
The details for input and output parts of the log can be configured in transaction PE04 for the particular payroll function. On the selection screeen of PE04 you can find icons for Input parameters and Output paramaters, where you can configure the objects to be displayed in the payroll log.
For the detailed texts in the processing part, they are usually controlled by the source code of the particular payroll function. E.g. function PIT will log rule processing details for each wage type in IT, whereas function IMPRT will log the old pay results info to be imported. They are usually not configurable for standard functions unless there are customer exits for them.
Schema consists of set of rules (PCR), function, operations.
Function, pcr(standard), opearation.whatever it is, it has it"s own standard (unique) functionality.
Input, processing and output, we do feel all these together as block in schema,
One output block in schema would be the input block while processing.
I hope, i have given explanation what i understood from documentation and reached you
