We have completely redesigned the processing of absences
relevant to statutory sick pay (SSP) and statutory maternity pay
(SMP). As a result, the processes used to store absence-related
payroll data have changed for this release. Old absence data must
also be converted to conform with the new design, and this is done
by running program RPUABPG0
Program RPUABPG0 performs the following functions:
1. Converts the absence calendar
stored in table NCALE on the PC cluster to the new format.
The main changes to the NCALE
a) Two record types now used to
differentiate between individual days and PIWs.
b) Payments now stored in table MSA
instead of in table NCALE.
c) Data on the number of weeks absent
and paid SSP/SMP now stored in each day record.
2. Populates the new table MSA with
data taken from the results table (RT) and the absence table
3. Clears the contents of any
infotype fields that are no longer used in absence processing. It
is planned to delete such fields from the infotypes for later
This affects the following
SSP Control GB
SSP SSP(1)L Form Data (new name for SSP PIW Record GB)
SMP Record GB
4. Deletes SSP PIW Records that are
not used for SSP(1)L or leavers' data.
If errors occur, the employee data is NOT converted.
The personal calendar display report (RPCLPCG0) now shows full
details of the individual days of an absence. This is useful for
checking the conversion results.
