Cumulation Identifiers

This section explains how to set up cumulation identifiers.

For further information, refer to the section "Cumulation wage types", or to the documentation on the form editor.

For information on how to use the form editor in the R/3 System, see Help -> R/3 Library -> HR - Human Resources -> HR Tools -> Forms: HR Form Editor.

Identifiers (for example, wage types) are cumulated in cumulation identifiers. Cumulation identifiers consist of identifiers.

Since the functions described below only apply to wage types used in the remuneration statement, this section will use the term "wage types" instead of the more general term "identifier".

There are two types of cumulation:

1. Compression of a wage type
Compression suppresses wage type splits for the period during which the system is creating a remuneration statement.
A compressed wage type can only be printed in one window.
2. Cumulation of several wage types
Cumulation involves grouping individual wage types together in one cumulation wage type.
A cumulation wage type can be printed either in one window or as a fixed layout item.

Compression and cumulation are both explained in greater detail and with the use of examples in subsequent steps. The wage type split is of particular importance, and for this reason a general explanation and examples are provided here.

General notes on the wage type split

Single wage type split

The following diagram provides an example of a single wage type split.

01.01.	 10.01.				 31.01.
  |---------------------------------|  Monthly value of wage type MA10
  |----01----|---------02-----------|  Cost accounting split (KR)
									 for monthly value of wage type

The original wage type here is the monthly value of wage type MA10 for January. There is a cost accounting split for this wage type which includes both the following time specifications:

Time specification Presentation in
payroll results
From To KR
01.01. 10.01. 01
11.01. 31.01. 02

The individual periods are identified in the payroll results by a two-digit number (split indicator). The first period is identified by "01" here and the second by "02".

Multiple wage type split

The following diagram provides an example of a multiple wage type split.

01.01.	10.01. 15.01.		31.01.
 |--------------------------------|  Monthly value for wage type MA10
 |----01----|-----------02--------|  Cost accounting split (KR)
									 for monthly value of wage type
 |-------01------|-------02-------|  Work center/basic pay split(WR)
									 for monthly value of wage type

The original wage type here is also the monthly value of wage type MA10 for January. There is a cost accounting split and a work center/ basic pay split for this wage type with the following time specifications:

Cost accounting split:
From To
01.01. 10.01.
11.01. 31.01.
Work center/basic pay split:
From To
01.01. 15.01.
16.01. 31.01.

The individual periods are identified in the payroll results by two-digit numbers (split indicators) as follows:

Time specification Presentation in
payroll results
From To KR WP
01.01. 10.01. 01 01
11.01. 15.01. 02 01
16.01. 31.01. 02 02

The periods calculated here are those for the maximum partial period pairs:

01.01.	10.01. 15.01.		31.01.
 |--------------------------------| Monthly value of wage type MA10
 |----01----|-----------02--------| Cost accounting split (KR)
