Absence type text not changing while creating a new record

Hi All,

I got the requirement change the text of the absence type along with delimiting the old record. So, when i am delimiting the old record & changing the text of the absence type with the new date, that text is changing for old record also.

Is there any way by which text of old record remains as it is and text for absence type with new date appears with the new text.

    Hi Priyanka,

    No, you can't do that if you change the text of the new one.. old one also gets changed, this is SAP standard,, you need to have two absence types if you need text to be changed..

    Hi Priyanka,

    There is no retention of history regarding text of any object in SAP HCM.

    Only the latest text will always get displayed.

    The Absence Infotype (IT2001) only contains the Absence code, not the text, and the same is true for many other Infotypes.

    For Absences and Attendances, the codes and parameters are in table T554S, but if you use t-code se16n and enter table T554S, click "Enter" and you will notice that it's text comes from table T554T, a table that is not date delimited but that has "Language" as one of it's keys.

    Note that it's the same for Payroll WageTypes, with table T512T.

    So, the "old record" does not contain the description, and the same is true of the "new record". They only contain the Time Type or the Wage Type, and it's description gets generated when you look at the Infotype, based on the Language you logged-in with.

    • Hi every one

      Re: object texts having history of changes, while I agree partly with Vivek that in most cases, it is possibly to have in some cases as below:

      a)PD objects - infotype HRP1000 - It is possible to see the different texts e.g., OU description delimited as of a date after go-live. This is configured in T77S0 with PLOGI TEXTO

      For job it is PLOGI TEXTC, for position PLOGI TEXT S

      With PLOGI SPLIT X, it is also possible to delimit IT 1 when say for example Org unit desc is changed in PD; and by running RHINTE30 this creates a BDC session to split IT 1 for the relevant's.
