In this step, employees whose absences are valuated in the same
way can be grouped together depending upon the
employee subgroup grouping for personnel calculation
rules. In this respect, you determine which table
entries are used by the system for which employee subgroup
groupings to valuate an absence.
To do this, function MOD XMOD GEN is accessed in personnel calculation schema MT00. By accessing this function, the system calls up personnel calculation rule XMOD (groupings for payroll accounting).
You want to enter different rules for valuating absences for the hourly paid on the one hand and for salaried employees on the other. For this reason, use this step to determine which table entries are used by the system to valuate absences.
The modifiers A and 2 (MODIF A, MODIF 2) are set in the standard SAP delivery system. Modifier A controls system access of the table Absence Valuation , which you process in the following steps.
MODIF A = 01:
When accounting takes place, the system only uses entries in the table Absence Valuation if they have the value 01 in the field A.val.gping (employee grouping for absence valuation). Other table entries are ignored when absences are valuated.
MODIF 2 = 01:
In the standard system, MODIF 2 is also set in this personnel calculation rule. You determine the groupings for accessing tables via MODIF 2 in a later step for time wage type valuation.
You should only make changes if you want the payroll driver to access tables for other groupings. In this respect, you must encode the appropriate tables for the groupings in question.
