Setting Correct Payroll Status


If personnel numbers are rejected or not selected during the payroll run, you must correct master data and time data in the appropriate infotypes. To do this, you must unlock the payroll accounting area by releasing it for corrections.

In Infotype 0003 Payroll status, the System sets a flag for the field Payroll correction for all rejected personnel numbers which are then grouped together in a list under matchcode W.1. Once you have corrected these employees’ master data, you can re-run the payroll for them. Matchcode W.1, which you should enter in the field Personnel number when re-running the payroll, is used as a selection criterion


  1. Select Human Resources ® Payroll.
  2. Select Payroll ® Corrections to release the locked payroll accounting area for corrections.


The Correct Payroll option is activated.

It is now possible to process master data that is relevant to payroll accounting for this payroll accounting area. You can correct master data for rejected employees or enter new data for which you want to perform a separate payroll run.
