In this step, you group together employees whose absences you
want to be valuated identically in absence valuation. You group the
employees according to the
employee subgroup grouping for personnel calculation
rules. In this way, you determine which table entries
the System references for which employee subgroup groupings during
Function MOD XMOD (or xMOD) GEN is accessed in personnel calculation schema xT00 (x stands for the country indicator). By accessing this function, the system calls personnel calculation rule XMOD or xMOD (groupings for payroll accounting).
You want to specify different rules for valuating absences for hourly wage earners than for salaried staff. In this step, you determine which table entries the System should use to valuate absences.
The modifiers A and 2 (MODIF A, MODIF 2) are set in the standard SAP delivery system. Modifier A controls the access to the Absence Valuation table which you edit in the following steps.
MODIF A = 01:
When accounting takes place, the system only uses entries in the Absence Valuation table if they have the value 01 in the A.val.gping field (employee grouping for absence valuation). Other table entries are ignored when absences are valuated.
MODIF 2 = 01:
In the standard SAP R/3 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 using other groupings. You must enter values for the respective grouping in the relevant tables.
If you use time evaluation, wage types are selected during time wage selection for absences that are valuated according to the "as-if" principle.
If you make changes to the assignment of employee groupings
for absence valuation (MODIF A) in this step, you should
change your time evaluation schemas accordingly in order to
guarantee consistency in absence valuation.
