Earliest master data change in IT0003 & audit report

Hi Experts,

Am just new in here for the forum, excuse me if its not the right way to create a thread!

Question is:

In IT0003, earlist master data changes field  is not capturing the earliest date from the infotype changes,

Scenario:i made changes in IT71 for a date of 01/02/2014 and it got saved in it0003( & following i made another change in IT69 for date of 01/04/2015. Now, in it0003 it got changes as( . Means, system will not trigger for the changes i made for IT71 prior to 01/04/2015.

Logically, system should always consider very earliest for the field when we make changes in multiple payroll related infotypes

meantime, when we checked the audit log, it shows only two entry which is like

IT                                                          OLD          NEW

0003      Ealirst master data change        000000       01/02/2014  -> IT71

0003      Ealirst master data change        000000       01/04/2015  -> IT69

System, should have an entry of deletion at least. It is disappears in my case.

Please, help me out and suggest if sap got released any note.

Thanks in Advance.

    This is strange! You are correct, if the existing date in Earl MD change is earlier than any new date due to changes in some other infotype, the existing date should not be overwritten.

    Is this happening for all employees? Can you check in your test system for some others?

    • Hi Jay,

      please can you check the below setting between your Production & Dev

      HR Documents: Infotypes with Documents (V_T585A)

      HR Documents: Field Group Definition (V_T585B)

      HR Documents: Field Group Characteristics (V_T585C)

      Infotype attributes customizing - V_T582A

      also you have to check your authorization whether you have full access to view the audit report in production (because earlier i had the same issue)

    For that employee, what is the "Earliest retro acctg period" and date for the relevant Payroll Accounting Period Control Record (t-code = pa03) ?

    Check the SAP note 1961699 Refund for Arrears payroll and it has a dynamic action for setting the PA0003-RRDAT
