Starting the payroll run calls up a country-specific payroll driver which then performs a complete payroll accounting run for the selected employees in accordance with settings in a country-specific schema. The payroll must be released before it can be started. Personnel numbers are only selected for payroll accounting if they belong to a released payroll accounting area.
In the field Payroll area, the system provides a default value which corresponds to your user parameter settings or the entries you made when selecting the Payroll menu. You can, of course, overwrite this default value.
The system fills this field with the appropriate, country-specific payroll schema which means that you are not usually required to make an entry yourself.
The indicator Test run ensures that the results of the payroll run are not saved. It must not be flagged for a live payroll run
The above indicators are for the function / operation Break, which can be specified in a country-specific payroll schema or subschema and which causes schema processing to be interrupted.
The indicator Unconditional interrupt ensures that the function / operation Break always causes an interruption to occur.
The indicator User-specific interrupt ensures that the function Break causes an interruption to occur depending on the ABAP/4 prefix. The ABAP/4 prefix is a part of your user parameters within SAP administration and can be specified as a parameter in addition to the function / operation Break. If you set a flag for the indicator User-specific interrupt, the Break is only effective if the ABAP/4 prefix in your user values matches the prefix specified as a parameter for the function / operation Break. If they do not match, no interruption occurs.
The indicator Switch off interrupt ensures that the function / operation Break is ignored.
The block Parameters for remuneration statement contains a series of default values suggested by the system. You can, of course, overwrite these default values. However, you are not usually required to make any entries yourself.
Superlines are lines in which values for more than one wage type are printed. The determining factor is whether or not a wage type has been encoded with column type 1 in the view Form-Related Control of Wage Types (V_T512E).
If a flag has been set for the indicator, a superline is only
printed if it contains a wage type with column type 1.
If a flag has not been set for the indicator, all superlines are printed.
The System stores employees rejected by the payroll run in
If personnel numbers are rejected or not selected do not exit the payroll program. Instead, you must check the payroll results and correct master data and time data for the appropriate personnel numbers where necessary.
In the same way, do not exit the payroll program if you want to split the payroll run. Do this if you want to perform payroll accounting at a later date for specific wage elements pertaining to the payroll period. Subsequent payroll runs for individual wage elements are treated similar to correction runs.
If payroll accounting is performed for all of the personnel numbers and you do not want to split the payroll run, you can exit the payroll program.
