Posting Run

Definition

Object for controlling transfer processes: Each time you start the posting to accounting program, a posting run is created with an individual number.

Use

The sub-processes within the Reporting of Payroll Results for Posting to Accounting component, known simply as Posting to Accounting, use the number of the posting run to access the relevant data. A posting run can only be accessed by one process at a time. You can check the order in which the sub-processes access the data in a posting run by looking at the status of the posting run.

All posting documents are assigned to a posting run. If you repeat or simulate Posting to Accounting, only simulation documents are created instead of posting documents. These simulation documents cannot be posted.

The posting run ensures that an employees payroll results are only posted once:
